This years June Service changes will complete the first phase in the Enhanced Bus Service / Moving LANTA Forward bus study. EBS buildout is a multi-phase program. June will mark the completion of “Phase 2”. At this point we will start referring to the Blue and Green Lines as EBS, but please note that we are be no measure “complete” in building out the EBS system. Look out for future improvements and service expansions on these lines.
This change does mark the completion of a two-year Comprehensive Operational Analysis, realigning the network to better connect with EBS lines and new developments across the region. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to build a system that better connects the Lehigh Valley with faster, more frequent and more reliable transit service.
