Metro announced on Thursday it’s investing $5 million over the next year to improve bus service for customers.

The first round of improvements, set to take effect June 17, are intended to improve on-time performance and reliability, as well as reducing crowding.

The effort is the biggest improvement to Metro’s bus service in five years.

It will include the introduction of new limited-stop MetroExtra routes on three new travel corridors and conversion of four existing routes to limited-stop MetroExtra service.

“Our ‘better bus’ program will improve the travel experience of bus customers throughout the region,” said Metro General Manager and CEO Richard Sarles. “This investment will add service and make buses more reliable and less crowded on our most heavily traveled bus corridors.”

A total of $3 million will be spent to advance its Priority Corridor Network to improve service and increased capacity.

Metro has listed a complete list of service enhancements on their website.
