New Bus Routes To Start Monday
Starting Monday, Tyler Transit patrons will find new scheduling, more transfer points, streamlined routes and spiffed-up wait stations in some locations.

New signage, a redesigned website and updated brochures are helping spread the word.

"This is the first major route improvement since Tyler Transit started the Yellow Line service in 2001," Transit Manager Heather Nick said. "This should really improve the system."

A major change between the old and new route plan is the number of transfer opportunities -- 13 are planned instead of one.

The main transfer point for three buses -- 1 Red, 2 Green and 4 Blue -- is moving from Bergfeld Center to Cotton Belt Train Depot, 210 E. Oakwood St.

The depot has climate-controlled waiting areas, indoor restrooms and amenities compliant with the Americans With Disabilities guidelines.

Patrons may purchase passes, tickets and tokens at the location.

Bergfeld will continue to serve as a stop, just not for transfers, officials said.

Multiple transfer opportunities will help avert delays, Ms. Nick said.

Red Line, which primarily runs on Broadway Avenue, will feature two buses, providing direct service every 35 minutes, officials said.

The fourth line, 3 Yellow, will have transfers at locations throughout the city, including The University of Texas at Tyler, Broadway Square Mall and Wal-ton Road at Frankston Highway.

For an overview of changes, visit Tyler Transit. Brochures outlining the changes are available on Tyler Transit buses.
