Transfort is seeking feedback on their proposed system route changes during the last week of January. Staff will be out in the community meeting with people on a new MAX bus in the middle of the day, after school, and after work from January 27-30.
Beginning in May 2014, Transfort will begin new MAX service along the Mason Corridor and realign many of its routes to connect with MAX at various stations and the new South Transit Center. More frequent and evening service will also be provided on many routes. Transfort began seeking public feedback on the proposed routes in May 2013. Citizen input has assisted in revising the routes and soon staff will finalize the changes. Three open houses will feature interpreter services for those whose first language is Spanish.
