Beginning Monday October 2 riders will be able to catch a city bus every 15 minutes on North Academy Boulevard. Route 25, which runs between the Citadel Mall and Voyager Parkway, will see increased service from 30 minutes to 15 minutes Monday through Friday. This popular route is one of the top three highest ridership routes in the system. Riders can now travel from the downtown area to the northern-most part of the city using this premium bus service for their entire trip. Other route improvements include adding an additional bus to Routes 10 and 11, which serve southern portions of the city, traveling between the downtown core and Pikes Peak Community College Centennial Campus. The additional bus will improve on-time performance for these two routes.
“We are continuing with our objective of improving our hub-and-spoke system by implementing a series of high-frequency transit routes. We now offer 15 minute bus service along Boulder Street and Platte Avenue and to northern Colorado Springs along Academy Boulevard; 15 minute service to UCCS utilizing Nevada Avenue and Weber Street; and 15 minute bus service to PPCC with Routes 10 and 11 along South Nevada Avenue,” said Craig Blewitt, director, Mountain Metropolitan Transit.
