Open Meeting for the Public Notice on Proposed Service Changes
The WRTA is considering a number of service changes to improve transit bus service reliability and wants to hear directly from its customers. To learn more about the proposed changes, we invite you to attend one of the public meetings on Monday, May 12, 2014 at 1:00 pm-2:00 pm as well as 5:00 pm-6:00 pm. The location of the meeting will be at CMRPC Grant Conference Room Union Station, Suite 200 Worcester MA 01604
Weekday Service Changes
Summer months changes (suspend service) effect routes 11A, 18, 24A.
Route 11A is proposed for total elimination at a future date and to redirect service. If redirected, a new route would be made for lower Pleasant Street/Worcester State University service.
Route 8 would see all inbound times adjusted to accommodate electric bus re-charging. Hub times would not change.
Saturday and Sunday Service Changes
Routes 7 & 19 would see additional time on their runs, but have fewer trips overall as their midday runs are not on time.
Route 12 which is not performing at our standards, would be eliminated for the summer and then considered for permanent elimination at a future date. Redirecting those assets to route 5 and route 27 weekend services.
The proposed changes would take effect June 28, 2014.
