The way you catch the bus is about to change.

TRANSPO unveiled the locations of 1,100 new "designated stops" today during a public meeting.

Right now to catch the bus... you have to flag it down, but by the end of the year TRANSPO hopes to have the new BUS-STOP system in place.

They took a lot of public input on where the new stops should be located.

TRANSPO hopes both drivers and riders will see improved efficiency.

David Cangany, TRANSPO general manager, says, "They could stop anywhere from four to five to six times in one city block to pick up passengers, because that's the way our current system is, so our operators are excited about the opportunity to now focus on driving, focus on safety."

Jeanine Rozum says, "If we had one place, it could help with the time. It could help with them being on time, making connections and in the long run it probably is a good thing."
