Better Bus Network

In November 2023, we rolled out the Better Bus Network, the first redesign of our network of bus routes in 40 years, to offer better service to our residents by increasing reliability and frequency.  Since then, we have been collecting your feedback and are implementing a number of improvements to make the system more accessible and convenient for our riders.

Effective April 29, we've increased frequency, added connections, updated running times, and adjusted some routes to provide more service for more people with more frequency. Learn more about the specific adjustments.
