MTS Plans Service Improvements

Este página en español

 

Increased revenues, combined with reinstated State Transit Assistance funding, allow MTS to consider restoring and improving services in 2012 and 2013. Improvements may include increased frequency and span of service on heavily used routes, restoration of some Sunday routes, and/or route improvements that better connect our system. Some improvements will be made in September 2012 and some in January 2013 if revenues remain high.


Before MTS presents a plan to its Board of Directors, it wants to hear from you. Help MTS plan the best possible route and schedule improvements by reviewing the proposed improvements below and consider attending an open house, taking our survey, or providing your input in other ways.
