El Metro administration announces that beginning Monday February 6th, 2017, several bus routes will extend services reaching out into the neighborhoods and shopping center locations.
“Our Transit system strives to provide safe and reliable public transportation services to residents and visitors of the City of Laredo”
said General Manager Claudia San Miguel.
In addition to the extensions of service on several bus routes throughout the city El Metro will announce bus stop enhancements that range from added bus stop amenities such as benches, shelters and canopies up to Transit Bike and Ride Plazas.
Council Members Vidal Rodriguez and Rudy Gonzalez will each announce a commitment to designate over $25,000.00 of their discretionary funds to expedite the bus stop amenity installation.
Route optimizations will enable the Transit System to reach out to new areas, to alleviate residents of recently designated food desert areas, and to bring employees closer to their place of employment without having to board two separate buses.
These new route extensions will go a long way toward providing additional and enhanced services for current and future customers who benefit from the use of El Metro’s Bus Routes. As always El Metro’s Administration encourages residents and visitors to try transit and take advantage of this hazel-free mode of transportation.
