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.
Details of the service change are outlined below:
Several stops will no longer be in service along Barnum Avenue.
Several stops will no longer be in service along East Main Street between Arctic Ave and Boston Ave.
Route 14 service will begin at the Westfield Trumbull Mall, at 8:59 AM. There will be a morning service gap between 9:48 AM and 12:43 PM, with service until 3:32 PM. There is no change to the Route 14 routing.
Route 17 will only service Wells St. and Housatonic Ave. between 7:30 AM and 4:40 PM, Monday through Friday. A new stop will be added on North Avenue at Remer Street, which will be serviced by Route 17 when it is not servicing Wells St. and Housatonic Ave.
There is an additional trip, departing the Bridgeport Bus Station at 5:41 PM, servicing Monroe Goodwill at 6:09 PM and returning to the Bridgeport Bus Station at 6:42 PM.
New service is being introduced on State Route 25, in Monroe. Four daily round trips, beginning at the Westfield Trumbull Mall in Trumbull, will bring passengers to Upper Stepney (Clock Tower Place), in Monroe. Stops will be made along State Route 111 (Newtown Turnpike), Spring Hill Road, Trefoil Drive and State Route 25 (Main St.)
All other routes are unchanged. If you have any question regarding these changes please let us know: email@example.com.
