The Big Blue Bus will be holding a community meeting on campus, at Ackerman Union's Room 3517, Wednesday, March 9.
Big Blue Bus seeks customer feedback on these scheduling and routing changes as part of its 5-year plan.
From their website:
Topics will include:
More Rapid 7; less local Route 7: Study results indicate more than half of Pico Blvd. riders are choosing to board Rapid 7 buses over local Route 7 buses. As a result, BBB plans to increase Rapid 7 frequency and extend service to the Metro Red Line (Wilshire at Western), which requires a decrease in local Route 7 service frequency.
Convert Express 10 to Rapid 10: Increased street congestion has been slowing this primarily freeway-bound route. To speed this primarily commuter service back up, BBB plans to convert it from a local to a Rapid style service by reducing the number of stops along the route.
Goodbye, Route 13?: Ridership has dropped since both Rapid 7 and local Route 7 duplicate most of this service. Due to low demand and high peak hour cost of operation, BBB plans to discontinue this service to support improvements on more popular services. Hello, Expo Light Rail!: When, where and how BBB will interface with this new service will be previewed.
