CLICK FOR DETAILS CLICK FOR LESS

Sunday, June 2nd service change details:

Blue slight timing changes before 7pm throughout their trips to improve punctuality.

Green down to every 30 minutes.

103 slight time extensions and a schedule shift

105 weekday schedule shift

106 (with 113 impacted) schedules shift (to better serve UMD hub)

107 schedule shift

108 schedule shift and slight timing change

109 last trips of night can loop through Proctor and Zenith Terrace “drop off only” instead of ending at Kwik Trip if passengers want to

110 changes to first and last trips of the day. Ability to request a transfer connection for 110 to meet at Superior and Garfield returns.

112 schedule shift (to better serve UMD hub)

 

Detailed Information:

Green Line service drops to every 30 minutes on weekdays (this will be the same as weekends as we continue to combat staffing level issues).

Blue Line slight timing changes across trips to hopefully provide improved on time performance on trips before 7pm.

103 timing shifts to distance itself more from the Blue Line and to improve meet up with the Green Line on weekends. Hopefully will also provide improved connections for High School dismissal times. It also received more time to make the journey like the Blue Line received.

Some trips of 104 that interline with the 110 or vice versa, or the 106 that interline with the 113 or vice versa may need to transfer buses at DTC if the previous trip ends with a shift change. Currently affected trips are:

The 110 arriving at DTC at 1:59pm would transfer buses to the 104 departing at 2:00 pm from DTC.

The 106 arriving at DTC at 1:35 pm would transfer buses to the 113 departing at 1:35 pm from DTC.

Passengers desiring to continue along these normally interlined routes should inform the driver when they get on so transfer requests can be sent before the first trips terminate at DTC.

106 and 112 Schedule shifts to allow for better arrival times at UMD (Route 113 also impacted) These buses will now be scheduled to arrive at UMD approximately 15 minutes before the hour. (We’ll especially want to get this word out to UMD students as they return.)

109’s last trip each evening now includes an optional extension to carry on through the Proctor and Zenith Terrace loops if there’s anyone seeking stops in that area on the last trip up to Proctor.
