Service Changes 2014

Press Release (PDF)  | En español

Effective: 2/2/14

GBT will be implementing several service changes to improve accessibility to new businesses and locations in the region. As part of this effort, we are introducing a new route —Route 20— that will provide service into Monroe to Stepney Center on weekdays.

We’ve removed several stops on Routes 1 and 9 to improve the ability of the bus to meet scheduled stop times. In all cases, there is another bus stop within a block of the removed stop. These changes were discussed with input from riders at several public meetings that were held this past Fall.

The following routes also have minor changes: Routes 1, 9, 14, 17, 19X.


All changes are effective Sunday, February 2, 2014. New system timetables will be available at the bus station on Thursday, January 30, 2014 and the website route pages will be updated on Friday, January 31 through Saturday, February 1, 2014. Changes to the Bus Tracker and Trip Planner will be made during the first week of service and are expected to be completed by February 7, 2014.
