Service Update - June 13, 2016
During the final weeks of spring and the semester break we had an active presence on the shuttlebus observing traffic, recording timing, and engaging some of you. This included a pilot run of a highly recommended northbound route change to Jefferson Street instead of Canal within the Loop. We have recently summarized our data and in the coming weeks we will work on the Phase II schedule revision.
We have realized through direct observation and your feedback that certain rush hour routes are unable to fulfill our long-standing arrival times in today's traffic environment on a consistent basis. Additionally, our service provider (Aries) has asked us to be especially mindful of congestion potential within the Loop this summer while construction and special events take place. We ask that you plan your commutes accordingly.
Within the next few days we will work with Aries to develop provisions to address rush hour timing and communication. We will be in touch with you later this week.
