Save (and Improve) the Local 1 Bus! Slated for Elimination in Connections2025.

This petition had 135 supporters

Capital Metro is working to reconfigure their bus routes to be more frequent and serve more people through Connections 2025. But they are spending too much money on trying to serve wealthy suburbs, and they are not spending enough to help the thousands of people on the Guadalupe and Lamar bus routes - the 1 and the 801. Right now, they are planning on eliminating the Local 1 altogether, and promising a few extra stops for the 801 as a substitute. Sign this to send a message that CapMetro should make the Local 1 frequent, and save one of the busiest routes they have!  

Making the 801 more frequent and giving it a few new stops under Connections2025 can't make up for the huge number of people who make the already infrequent 1 route one of the busiest buses in the system.  We need a frequent service along stops on Guadalupe and Lamar spaced no more than 1/4 mile apart - there are too many elderly, differently-abled, students, services, apartments, and destinations along the route to be served by stops spaced too far apart on the 801 alone.
