Bus Stop Updates on Gorham St. and Johnson St.

As part of the service changes, Metro is updated bus stop locations on East Johnson and Gorham streets.

With Metro’s ever-increasing ridership, more and more people are boarding and exiting the bus, which causes delays at each stop. Each delay results in the bus falling further behind to the point it can no longer make connections at the end of the route.

Metro has removed two stops on Gorham St. at intersections of Brearly and Few streets. This leaves a bus stop location on every other block.

Passengers will need to board at alternate stop locations on Blount, Patterson, and Ingersoll streets, which is an additional 1/8 mile from removed stops. Removing these stops are expected to make travel times faster and more reliable while limiting missed connections at transfer points.

Upcoming detours

Eastbound Route 81 Detour; Johnson St. Construction

  • Due to construction, eastbound Route 81 will be the only route using Johnson Alternative stops will be served (See More).
