After a year and a half of redrawing, presenting, and tweaking, Metro’s “reimagined” transit plan was approved by the transportation agency’s board today. The interactive map above shows the whole system in all its reconfigured glory, including the new rail lines currently scheduled to begin running in April. Bus routes will switch over to the above route system in August.
Bus lines are represented by color: Routes drawn in red will run every 15 minutes or less at least 15 hours a day, 7 days a week. Lines shown in blue will run every 16 to 30 minutes. Lines drawn in green will run every 31 minutes to 60 minutes, 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. Orange “express” lines will run only during peak hours, on weekdays. A full-page map is available here.
