Route Redesign

Project Overview

With the development of Central Station at Bob Billings & Crestline Drive, bus routes will be redesigned to better serve this new transfer center and the community at large. Route Redesign will go into effect in two phases, with Phase 1 in August 2022 and Phase 2 in early 2023. Phase 2 will include the introduction of Sunday microtransit service, as well as fare free service system-wide.
