Based on the results of the Grand Valley Transit (GVT) Operations, Route, and Schedule Analysis that concluded in March, route modifications have been suggested that will improve reliability and travel time, enhance customer satisfaction and increase ridership.
Those suggested route changes will be implemented starting Saturday, May 21.
Open houses were held in January and March, and final proposed changes were brought to the public for review on April 5. GVT has received comments from passengers regarding the changes. This feedback greatly helped GVT adjust the proposed changes to their present form.
GVT makes service changes to meet the diverse travel needs of the communities it serves. As GVT officials review and develop services, they make necessary changes to routes. Those changes reflect continued budgetary challenges faced by GVT, as well as changes in ridership and community feedback.
New GVT maps are available on all GVT buses and in the pass lobbies. Community members can call 256-RIDE (7433) to receive a new map in the mail. To assist with trip planning, customers may use the Google Transit Trip Planner online at gvt.mesacounty.us or call 256-RIDE from 5 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
