Better Bus Stop Signs

Transit Information at Bus Stops

Metro Transit has been working to improve the information that is available at more than 12,000 bus stops in its service area. A major part of this effort was a redesign of bus stop signs to provide stop-specific transit information.

The standard bus stop sign now includes route numbers, a unique stop number, and instructions on how to access NexTrip real-time information for that stop.

At bus stops that are used by more customers, Metro Transit provides additional transit information:

  • Higher ridership bus stops with transit shelters have detailed schedule information and route maps posted inside of the shelters.
  • Higher ridership bus stops that do not have a shelter get additional signs with more detailed information about the routes serving that bus stop, including maps, route destinations and service frequency. This information is installed on separate signs below the bus stop sign.

In 2019, Metro Transit redesigned shelter signage to include stop-specific times and maps. 

Metro Transit continues to explore ways to improve information at our stops, including information about stop closures and detours, real-time bus departure information and wayfinding.
