Routing and Levels of Service (2)

Changes Planned for Fall of 2008

Reports of impending route changes were released to the press before being made available to the public. Unfortunately, those articles report that ridership was almost as high in 2007 as in 1982. That is almost surely inaccurate and misleading but is what Metro is telling journalists. The newspaper documents used to buttress this point have unfortunately been removed.

Rerouting in the Fall of 2006

Metro Transit's restructuring undermined welcome innovations with undue emphasis on cuts. Metro Transit called the rerouting "improvements" and "efficiences" but failed to also say that those changes often involved major service cuts and continued a trend of declining bus service. Metro held a Public Hearing May 22, 2006 regarding the changes. Many thought the outcome a foregone conclusion.
