Effective: November 25, 2013
GBT is expanding service into the Quarry Road area at the request of our riders and businesses. Over recent years, this area has seen increased development—offices, medical providers, a movie theatre, etc. Due to increased demand, GBT has been able to leverage available resources to provide service to this area via the existing Route 9 bus route. This new service will provide increased access to jobs, medical offices, the Fairchild Wheeler High school, the Bridgeport Police Athletic League and movie theater on Quarry Road.
The Route 9 bus will begin to make deviations to Quarry Road, via Broadbridge Rd., White Plains Rd. and Old Town Rd. Deviations will be made every hour, from 7:12 AM to 6:20 PM. This change will result in hourly service between Huntington Tpk. and Broadbridge Rd. and the Hawley Lane Mall, between the hours of 6:37 AM and 6:38 PM.
All other portions of the Route 9 service will remain at a half hour frequency. This change will only affect weekday Route 9 service.
Stops which will only be serviced once per hour, while the deviation is being made include:
All existing Route 9 bus stops, which are not listed above, will be serviced every half hour, as they currently are.
Stops which will be added on this deviation include:
These stops will be serviced weekdays, every hour between 7:06 AM and 6:26 PM.
GBT kicked off a new partnership with Radio Cumbre in October 2013, in an outreach effort to the Spanish-speaking community. GBT CEO Douglas Holcomb was interviewed about GBT services at the Radio Cumbre studios in downtown Bridgeport.
Three additional interviews are scheduled for the upcoming year. The next interview will occur in January; details will be announced on Facebook and Twitter.
