Final Fall Service Changes Effective

September 8, 2013

ROUTES WITH BUS STOP ADJUSTMENTS

Route #1, #3, #5, #25 - Bus stop standardization on routes: #1, #3, #5 and #25 will be implemented to help keep buses moving and aid on-time performance for all riders. Bus stops will be spaced approximately every two to four blocks (or approximately 1000 to 1300 feet). In addition to spacing, other considerations, most importantly safety, will be applied when determining bus stop locations. This standardization policy aligns with best practices of the transit industry.

ROUTES WITH BUS STOP AND ROUTING ADJUSTMENTS

Routes #9 and #25 - There will no longer be bus stops in the Chapel Hills Mall parking lot. Both routes 9 and 25 have been redesigned to use the new Voyager Parkway transfer station. These routes will also utilize the stop on Jamboree Drive for accessibility to the Chapel Hills Mall. This proposed change is due to Mountain Metropolitan Transit’s policy not to route its buses on private property. In the current situation, large buses must navigate narrow, slow, congested parking lot drive aisles to reach the front doors of the Mall which slows rider travel times and is a hazard for bus drivers, riders, and pedestrians, especially during busy holiday shopping times.

ROUTES WITH ROUTING ADJUSTMENTS

Route #14 - will be extended to Doherty High School, via Oro Blanco Drive and Barnes Road to offer students and others increased service.

ROUTE WILL END FOR THE SEASON

Manitou Springs Summer Shuttle - The seasonal Manitou Springs summer shuttle will end this fall on September 7, 2013 due to the route’s summer-only grant funding agreement.  The route will return in the spring of 2014 per the grant funding agreement.

MOUNTAIN METRO MOBILITY RESERVATION CHANGES

ADA Paratransit Riders - Due to high demand on this service and a continued high level of trip cancellations, minor rule changes will be implemented for eligible ADA riders making reservations for Mountain Metro Mobility service. Advance reservations will be taken for travel only up to 3 days in advance of travel instead of the current 7 days. This change will adjust Mountain Metropolitan Transit’s policy to match more of its peer transit agencies and free-up the reservationists to handle calls more expeditiously for more riders. Separately, subscription service for off-peak times is currently still available. (Peak times subscriptions from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on weekdays are currently full). Subscription service is limited to not more than 50% of the rides at any hour of any day unless there is non-subscription capacity. Subscription trips during peak hours will be reduced to better meet this metric. A waiting list for peak times is expected to be made available later in 2013.

ROUTES WITH PROPOSED BUS STOP ADJUSTMENTS

Route #1, #3, #5, #25 It is proposed to implement bus stop standardization on routes: #1, #3, #5 and #25 to help keep buses moving and aid on-time performance for all riders. Bus stops will be spaced approximately every two to four blocks (or approximately 1000 to 1300 feet). In addition to spacing, other considerations, most importantly safety, will be applied when determining bus stop locations. This standardization policy aligns with best practices of the transit industry. List of bus stops.

ROUTES WITH PROPOSED BUS STOP AND ROUTING ADJUSTMENTS

Route #9 It is proposed to eliminate the existing bus stop on Sears property at Chapel Hills Mall.  Route #9 would continue to operate over its entire existing route in the vicinity of Chapel Hills Mall but it would not pull off of Briargate Parkway and drive on Mall/Sears property to the existing bus stop at the front doors of Sears.  Route #9 riders would continue to have sufficient walking access to Chapel Hills Mall’s front doors from existing bus stops located along Briargate Parkway and Chapel Hills Drive. The bus would stop on Voyager Parkway at the new layover bus stop adjacent to Wal-Mart. This proposed change is due to Mountain Metropolitan policy not to route its buses on private property. In the current situation, MMT’s large buses must navigate narrow, slow, congested parking lot drive aisles to reach the front doors of the Mall which slows rider travel times and is a hazard for bus drivers and pedestrians, especially during busy holiday shopping times.

Route #25 It is proposed to eliminate the existing bus stop on Sears property at Chapel Hills Mall.  Instead, route #25 would serve Chapel Hills Mall from the street via two new bus stops that would be constructed on: northbound Academy Blvd (north of Briargate Parkway) and Jamboree Drive (next to Wal-Mart, opposite Sears).  Near Chapel Hills Mall, the route would operate northbound on Academy Blvd, then turn northeast on Voyager Parkway (Hwy 83), then turn southeast on Razorback Drive, then turn southwest on Jamboree Drive to Academy Blvd where it would turn southbound for its return trip on Academy Blvd.  The bus would stop on Voyager Parkway at the new layover bus stop adjacent to Wal-Mart. This proposed change is due to Mountain Metropolitan policy not to route its buses on private property.  In the current situation, MMT’s large buses must navigate narrow, slow, congested parking lot drive aisles to reach the front doors of the Mall which slows rider travel times and is a hazard for bus drivers and pedestrians, especially during busy holiday shopping times.

ROUTES WITH PROPOSED ROUTING ADJUSTMENTS

Route #14 It is proposed to extend route #14 east from its existing terminus at Morning Sun Drive/Academy Blvd. to Doherty High School due to a request from the high school. The new routing would abandon the existing bus stop layover on Morning Sun Drive.  Instead, the proposed route would extend across Academy Blvd on Austin Bluffs Parkway, then access Doherty High School and return to Austin Bluffs Parkway. This will also allow for more direct access to bus service for businesses and residents near Doherty High School.

ROUTE TO END FOR THE SEASON

Manitou Springs Summer Shuttle The seasonal Manitou Springs summer shuttle will end this fall on September 7, 2013 due to the route’s summer-only grant funding agreement.  The route would return in the spring of 2014 per the grant funding agreement.

MOUNTAIN METRO MOBILITY RESERVATION CHANGES

ADA Paratransit Riders It is proposed to make minor rule changes for eligible ADA riders making reservations for MMT’s ‘Metro Mobility’ service due to high demand on this service and a continued high level of trip cancellations. Advance reservations would be taken for travel only up to 3 days in advance of travel instead of the current 7 days. This proposed change would adjust MMT’s policy to match more of its peer transit agencies and free-up reservationists’ time to handle calls more expeditiously for more riders. Separately, subscription service for off-peak times is currently still available.  (Peak times subscriptions from 7:00am to 9:00am and 1:30 to 3:00 on weekdays are currently full). Subscription service is limited to not more than 50% of the rides at any hour of any day unless there is non-subscription capacity. Subscription trips during peak hours are to be reduced to better meet this metric. A waiting list for peak times is expected to be made available later in 2013.

Final Service Changes Effective April 1, 2013

NEW SERVICE

The route will help alleviate parking congestion near the Cog Railway and the Manitou Incline. The summer service, pending final FTA approval, will start on 5/19/2013 and end on 9/7/2013. There will be no fare due to the short route and the availability of federal grant funding. The route will operate along Manitou Avenue, between Old Man’s Trail and Ruxton Avenue, and connect to the COG Railway/Incline area. It will operate daily 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Evening Service on Key Routes

No riders will lose ADA Metro Mobility service, rather; this is an additional service option. The option is being added as a way to promote independence and help control costs.

FINAL CHANGES TO FARE OPTIONS

Day Pass

A new fixed-route transit day pass ($4) will be added as a convenience to existing and new MMT customers. Riders will have unlimited rides until midnight the same day of purchase or when the pass is activated in the fare box onboard the bus. This new payment option will be available for sale at onboard at MMT fareboxes and at ticket vending machines. To keep buses moving quickly, and control costs, no reduced-rate option will be provided. Seniors, youth, and disabled riders will still have the full variety of other reduced-rate programs and passes.

22-Ride Bus Ticket

The existing 22-ride pass will be phased out and replaced with a 20-ride pass in an effort to help simplify MMT passes for non-standard riders. To correspond with the reduced number of trips, the cost will be reduced from $35 to $32 and the ‘Special’ reduced-rate passes for seniors/youth/disabled riders will be reduced to $16 from $17.50.

Summer Haul Pass

Route #8 - Cache la Poudre St.The existing 5-block segment on Willamette Ave. will be relocated to Cache la Poudre St. (All existing Route #8 service on Willamette Ave. will still be served by Route #12). In addition, the existing routing on a 3-block segment of Institute St. will be eliminated. Most riders will still be within one and a half blocks of either Route #8 or Route #12.
 
Buses will operate to and from the downtown terminal via Nevada Ave. and Cache la Poudre St. These adjustments will reduce existing duplicative routing on Willamette Ave. (Route #12 and Route #8) and expand service to more potential destinations on Route #8 including Colorado College and Palmer High School. Most existing riders will not be negatively affected by these changes.
Route #12 - Palmer Park Blvd. - Existing operation on a 4-block segment of El Paso St. and a 2-block section of Kiowa St. will be relocated to Wahsatch Ave. and Willamette Ave. This will help improve on-time performance. Most riders on these streets will still be able to access the route by walking one to two blocks.
 
In addition, existing travel on a 2-block section of E. Buena Ventura St. will be relocated to E. Caramillo St. This is to eliminate a problematic eastbound left-hand turn at the intersection of Buena Ventura St. and Palmer Park Blvd. Most existing riders on Buena Ventura St. will still be able to walk one block to access the route. Most existing riders will not be negatively affected by these changes.
Route #25 - Academy Blvd. - There will be minor time point adjustments for Route #25. The adjustments will be within minutes of the current timetable. This is to address recent construction completion at the intersection of Woodmen Rd. and Academy Blvd. and improve on-time performance. Additionally, these adjustments are designed to improve timing at Pikes Peak Community College, Citadel, and Chapel Hills Mall transfer stations.

 
ROUTES TO BE ELIMINATED

Ute Pass Express service - The last full day of service will be October 28, 2011. This service will be replaced with van pool and carpool options. Please contact Metro Rides at 385-RIDE (7433) Option #2 or metrorides@springsgov.com. This service elimination is due to the close of the federal grant period, low ridership, and lack of funding support from the City of Woodland Park.

New schedules, with new timetables and maps, will be available online the week of October 17.
