The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public an overview of planned service updates scheduled to take effect Sunday, September 13, 2020. Service updates include previously vetted changes, including the permanent elimination of Route 75, route modifications to Routes 76, 77 and 79, and extension of Route 50 east to Broad and 2nd. Because of ongoing service needs during COVID-19, Route 39 will remain suspended until further notice and Routes 4A/B will remain at 30-minute frequency all day. Finally, Route 1A/B/C will receive a new experimental “trunk” route on Sundays.
