Metro will host the final public meeting on bus consolidation, Thursday, May 17, 7 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church, as it looks to consolidate bus stops to improve efficiency and on-time performance.
Metro is considering consolidating bus stops that see relatively low numbers of passengers and/or are in close proximity to other stops in order to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Bus stop consolidation would benefit passengers with better on-time performance and more frequent service at remaining stops, and help Metro save both fuel and maintenance costs as a result of less stopping and starting.
After gauging public input, a second round of meetings to be held this summer will seek to identify stops and provide a timeframe for consolidation. Metro plans to review bus stops along three or four lines each quarter. No bus stops have yet been identified for consolidation.
