Bus Stop Consolidation and New Bus Stop Signage: Bus stops play an important role in service accessibility, community identity, and safety and comfort of waiting customers. Bus stop location is determined by GTrans staff and will aim to balance operating speed and convenience of service access. GTrans’ goal is to have stops spaced approximately ¼ mile apart, although stops may be located more closely depending on land use. Stops may be located further apart if safety conditions do not allow a safe stop to be placed within ¼ mile of the previous stop. Where site conditions allow, GTrans aims to have far-side stops, which reduce conflict with right-turning vehicles, eliminate sight-distance deficiencies at intersection approaches, and encourage pedestrians to cross behind the bus. Additionally, far-side stops will allow GTrans to implement transit signal priority in the future, which will expedite travel across intersections. You may view the updated bus stop lists (officially effective August 12, 2018) here:

Beginning on Monday, August 13, 2018, GTrans will begin installing new bus stop signage at all bus stops throughout the service area. These new signs will feature GTrans’ logo, route numbers and destinations, route days of operation, and the agency website and phone number. GTrans will post frequent updates on our website and social media about where work will be taking place daily to help you plan your trip accordingly.
