Throughout October, Mountain Line continues to make progress on its Bus Stop Improvement Project, which is aimed at improving safety, increasing accessibility, and maximizing efficiency. Part of this work involves moving some bus stops to safer locations along our routes and / or condensing multiple stops along a specific corridor into fewer stops to ensure we remain on time and efficient.
This month, riders will notice new bus stop signs and some changes along Route 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 14. Specific changes are outlined below. To learn more about our Bus Stop Improvement Project, click here.
