Metro to increase bus stop spacing for Routes 36 and 60
Metro is planning to reduce the number of closely spaced bus stops on the Route 36 and 60 corridors, affecting some stops that also serve routes 113, 124, 128, 131, 133, 134, 154, and 173. The changes will help buses move faster and operate on a more reliable schedule, reduce energy consumption and emissions, and reduce Metro’s operating and maintenance costs.
Currently, the corridors have a combined 137 bus stops south of S Jackson Street, with an average stop spacing of about 920 feet. The plan will remove 28 of these stops, plus two on East Marginal Way S, increasing the average spacing between stops to about 1,150 feet.
As a result of the changes, approximately 11 percent of Route 36 and 60 riders who board south of S Jackson Street will have to catch their bus at a different stop. When the project is completed, all riders should have a faster, more reliable trip.
The following stops are proposed for closure on April 2, 2011:
