  • High-frequency, 15-minute transit service added on South Academy Blvd., Route 27

“Mountain Metro has nearly doubled the hours of bus service since 2010 with new routes and better frequencies,” said Craig Blewitt, director Mountain Metropolitan Transit. “Many improvements have been implemented just this year. If you haven’t yet added alternative modes of transportation to your list of things you need to do in 2019, now is a good time to try your local bus service.”
