Bus Stop Signs
The first tools residents will see are new bus stop signs on every route. Instead of the white rectangular bus stop signs that exist now, Transfort is installing round green and blue signs designating a Transfort stop. Beginning in May, each stop will also receive a new information sign that helps riders access real time bus arrival information for individual bus stops.
Transfort is updating its fleet of vehicles with seven new buses. To be consistent with the design of new bus stop signs and other system changes, these new buses will have a fresh and consistent look. Instead of the current white buses with blue, red and purple stripes, the buses will be blue and green. The entire fleet will also be modernized with the new colors.
May Updates To Be Announced Soon
Transfort is committed to modernizing not only its fleet of buses, but providing real time travel information for the Fort Collins community. New rider technology, routes and bus service changes will be announced in late April prior to system upgrades and enhancements. Stay up to date on all Transfort news at ridetransfort.com.
