Bus Stop Optimization Project

Keep an eye out for Barrie Transit's Bus Stop Optimization Program. When bus stops are too close together it slows everyone down. Approximately 20% of a bus routes travel time is spent at a stop. Stop optimization allows for reduced travel times, increased bus reliability, and improved stop infrastructure. Stop optimization keeps stops near health care facilities, schools, community centres, senior’s centres, and other points of interest. How is stop optimization performed?
