Bus route changes will start Nov. 12 for Grand Forks and East Grand Forks

Bus routes in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks will look at little different come Nov. 12.

That’s the day changes suggested by city staff and bus riders will go into effect.

The biggest change isn’t where the bus stops are but where the buses will stop. Passenger’s ability to wave down the bus and board it will cease after Nov. 12.

It’s part of Cities Area Transit’s transition to a designated stop system. Having a designated stop system will keep buses running on time more often, city staff have said.

Changes to existing routes also are meant to improve the bus system’s efficiency.
