I'm being sarcastic because I really am not impressed with the level of public transportation in Omaha.
Hahaha, I figured thats what it was. Yeah, I really don't like our bus service either. It's only alright if you live east of 72nd, where theres a bunch of routes and if you need to go downtown.

Since the 22 would change, the 4 in my situation wouldn't interline with the 22, just because it's simple, but it very well could still interline. But here's what I would do with the 4:

Runs to Midtown TC via Saddle Creek Road, On weekdays, except evenings.
Saturday: 45 minute frequency, does not serve Midtown TC, lines up at Westroads with Saturday Route 64.
Sunday: One and one half hour frequency.

Here is the justification for the transfer point at 168th and Maple on the route 19 map. There are rush hour transfer points of this "Route 64". Those are transer points with "Route 91", the Northwest Omaha Express I have thought up, but still need to make a map for. Here is Route 64:


Also, the Shadow Lake bus you mentioned, I've figured out something for that and I will post it when I am finished.

Oops. It looks like I didn't finish the eastbound Saturday schedule and didnt label the Saturday schedule as "Saturday" The Westbound Saturday schedule is correct though. You can probably connect the dots, though, right?

like the route 64 look

the media would have to advertise (i.e. the omaha world herald and the reader and the 4 local tv stations

to help routes 12 and 19 and 64 be a success.

Yeah, I really don't think any of these routes would make it without advertisement. Possibly 64, since it is on a major street. Since these routes are all in West Omaha, it would probably take a while to catch on, but eventually, I think they could be a hit.

I think the 64 would catch on. I would try it at least once all the way to 204th and maple.

I think this route would do well these days with heightened interest in public transit, and also because of the service along dodge street, where Indian Hills, UNO, UNMC, and Mutual lie. The old route 99 Express did not serve these areas. Also with the addition of "Route 12" Route 99 would do even better because the routes will work together to boost eachother's riderships, because once people use the express route to get around, they may think "Hey, route 99 is pretty nice to get to work, maybe I should hop on Route 12 to go to Westroads or Oakview and even Village Pointe." That quote is a little far fetched. We all know how Omahans feel about buses, but the option would be there and I think there would be a chance for success.


your 12 route idea (there used to be a route 12 that ran down pacific)


could possibly work considering the new Ironwood country club near 132nd and Pacific is where Temple Israel (currently at 72nd street near the abadoned crossroads mall)

and other stuff will be at in 2012. or 2013

(see story at) Country club to religious center? - Omaha.com
