Route 2 Improvements

Metro Transit is testing a new initiative to improve the transit experience on local routes. We are looking at changes on and off the bus to make your trip better, faster and more reliable.

Changes beginning October 13

  • Rebalance bus stop locations to make the trip faster, with stops spaced up to 1/4 mile apart
  • Install new shelters and upgrade existing ones, happening throughout 2018 and into 2019
  • In the next years, giving buses the ability to ask for green lights (signal priority) at intersections with long delays

Why Route 2?

  • The route is very slow, even compared to other similar urban bus routes
  • It is also one of the busiest (8th busiest Metro Transit route) with 6,000 weekday boardings
  • It serves major destinations, transit connections, and neighborhood venues
