How were these routes selected?

Route 32 – a crosstown route mainly along Lowry Avenue, and Route 62, which serves Rice Street, were chosen to serve people in the east and west metros and to include a mix of core local and supporting local service.

The routes also serve corridors where many residents identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, are low-income, or who do not have access to a vehicle.
