    I strongly recommend that instead of or in addition to enhancements, improvements should be made to the existing buses. The 302/G route, which services stops only once an hour, has routine breakdowns (approximately once every two weeks), meaning that riders have to wait an entire hour for another bus to show up. This is unacceptable, and makes it so people who have to make it to work or are trying to make it home are delayed. Most people affected by these RTA breakdowns do not have the financial resources to take a taxi or ride-sharing service to make it to work or home in time. In conclusion, before creating additional routes or bus stop enhancements, I ask that you please make sure that existing routes are properly serviced by functioning buses.

  • re:405 yellow bus I would like to recommend that the yellow bus extend its services to Pine Orchard Ln. new townhome and other apt community aren’t able to access public transportation. Please extend.
