We need your feedback!

We heard you! As part of earlier outreach efforts for the Making Better Connections Study, we listened to your bus-riding preferences. Now, we’re ready to share the Proposed Service Plan that aligns transit service with when and where people travel, adds bus trips and reduces transfer times between routes.

Please review the Proposed Service Plan, provide feedback and check out whether your trip will be affected by the proposed changes.

Proposed Route Changes

These route recommendations maximize efficiency, increase bus service on high ridership routes, reduce the wait time to catch a bus and simplify route structures.
