Springfield Bus Stop Consolidation
PVTA is working to improve our service for our riders in Springfield by better balancing the distances between bus stops and our riders’ origins and destinations. There are 814 bus stops in Springfield, which is about twice as many as are needed. Better stop spacing means riders will get where they are going faster. It also means better safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motor vehicles because there will be fewer places where buses pull into/out of traffic. There will also be more curb space for businesses that need on-street parking.
PVTA is seeking public comments about this plan. While 4 of 5 riders will not be affected, we want to make sure that we meet the needs of people who will be. A list of upcoming community meetings is shown below—please consider attending.
