Bus numbers being changed

Post by flyingember » Wed Sep 14, 2016 11:19 am

Center city 1-99
Wyandotte 100s
northland 200s
Independence 300s
JoCo 400s
Suburban express 500s

57 routes will be renumbered.

Decent change. If you hop on a certain number you will know generally where it's heading with this setup.

Not a fan of change that significant unless the benefit is also significant, not sure it would be. Hopefully the metadata that feeds the bus tracking/mapping apps will be immediately updated when going live. Would be big mistake if not.

if they were smart, the head signs on the buses will show both numbers for awhile. i think this is a good change. it make the system more legible for casual users.

I love this, except for the express routes.
