JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Transportation Authority is moving forward with plans to change routes.

The board approved the changes Thursday for the Route Optimization Standards and Service Changes.

JTA is looking to make more frequent stops along some routes, while shortening others.

“Board approval of ROI is the step needed to officially make changes to meet the demands of 21st Century commuters and occasional choice riders who want to get where they are going quickly, safely and efficiently,” said JTA CEO Nathaniel P. Ford Sr.  “Route Optimization redesigns the Authority’s bus and Community Shuttle service to make them more appealing to current and potential riders. This is great news for Northeast Florida.”

The new routes, schedules and real time passenger mobile app will go into effect on Dec. 1.
