Bus Stop Removal Project

Jefferson Transit is auditing bus stops on routes across the system in an effort to increase bus frequency and decrease trip time for riders. This project primarily looks at the number of people getting on and off the bus at stops that are within one or two blocks of each other. JeT will place a decal on the stops that are planned for removal. If any of these stop removals affect you, the next nearest stop will only be a block or two away in most cases.
