To make your transit better, ETS adjusts bus routes five times a year, typically around September, December, February, April and June.  These changes are made to accommodate shifts in ridership demand, customer feedback, and road construction activity.  ‚Äč

2017 Reallocation Plan

In July, underused bus routes with an average of 12 passenger boardings per hour were selected for reduction in service or cancellation. In order for bus service to be maintained in an area, City Policy requires 30 passenger boardings per hour during peak periods and 15 passenger boardings per hour in off-peak time periods.

Starting September 5, the hours recovered from these reductions will be moved to improve on-time performance and provide standby service as needed. Reallocated hours will also provide additional trips on higher demand routes, such as Route 6 and 15.

Moving hours from underused trips to enhance service reliability leads to a better customer transit experience and a better value for taxpayer dollars.

Seasonal service restored

Fewer people use transit during the summer months so trips on some routes are removed temporarily. Starting September 5, trips will be restored on the following routes:

Routes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 23, 30, 31, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 72, 78, 79, 94, 95, 97, 100, 101, 102, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 112, 117, 119, 125, 128, 130, 134, 140, 145, 150, 151, 153, 161, 162, 163, 164, 165, 167, 168, 169, 180, 181, 182, 183, 186, 187, 188, 190, 191, 192 and 399.
