What are bus stop changes?
The addition, improvement, and/or reduction of bus stops in an effort to decrease travel time, keep the buses on schedule, and improve the rider experience.
What does this means for you?
Buses will stop less, which helps get you to your destinations faster and on schedule. Less idle time will reduce noise, pollution and fuel use. Amenities (shelters, etc.) can be moved to higher ridership stops.
What is considered for these changes?
The following is some of the qualities of a stop was considered to determine if a stop was removed or kept:
- Proximity – the spacing between stops within a 0.25 mile
- Ridership – the total people coming on and off the stop is less than nearby or other route stops
- Transfer Points – the stops that allowed for route transfers
- Point of Interest – the stops that are nearby parks, shopping, apartments, future development, etc.
