What is a Service Change?
Every day, changes occur within our community that can affect the transit system. We respond by regularly reviewing these changes and determine if adjustments need to be made to better serve you.
Service changes allow us to modify existing route alignments, schedules, bus stops and facilities in order to improve overall service. People Mover's goal is to maximize the efficiency of its existing resources, and allocate them accordingly based on ridership trends and route productivity.
People Mover's annual service change typically takes place during the summer. The service change process spans four to six months and includes the following steps:
- Service change proposal development
- Community involvement
- Schedule development
- Infrastructure needs
- Customer information and education

People Mover is planning a Service Change for implementation June 1st, 2015. Click here for a PDF version of the June 2015 Service Change Proposal.
