Big Blue Bus Community Meeting Tonight To Discuss Future Service Changes

A Big Blue Bus community meeting will be held today, Tuesday Sept. 6, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to discuss service changes to Routes 5, 12 and Super 12 that are under consideration for implementation in February 2012.

The meeting will be held in the Santa Monica Main Library, Multi-Purpose Room, 2nd floor, 601 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica.

The service change proposal highlights include:

~ Changing Route 5 so it operates north/south on Robertson Blvd. to the new EXPO light rail station in Culver City; service east of Robertson would be discontinued (this also eliminates duplication of Route 7 service along Pico Blvd.)

~ Changing Route 12 so it only operates to the new EXPO light rail station in Culver City; service along Robertson Blvd. would be discontinued and replaced by Route 5 (see above)

~ Converting Super 12 to Rapid 12 by decreasing the number of stops it would made; new Rapid service would connect to EXPO light rail station in Culver City (but would no longer operate along Robertson Blvd.), weekday frequency would increase and weekend service would be added

Please note, while changes to Routes 3 and 14 had been presented at community meetings in March and April of 2011, those plans have been tabled for now and will not be on the agenda at this meeting.

Anyone who cannot make the meeting can share their feedback by emailing Bus-
