Summary of Metro Route Adjustments
effective on October 31, 2010
To All Passengers:
Metro is adjusting routes and service levels to
make the whole bus and rail system more efficient.
This is necessary due to continued financial pressure
on our budget, less available operating assistance
and changes in riding patterns. The
adjustments are based on a thorough operational
and financial evaluation of the entire Metro system.
The adjustments are designed to improve service
for most Metro riders; however, we understand that
some riders will be negatively affected. Ultimately,
changes will result in transit that is financially
stronger and better for the majority of our riders.
Buseswill runmore frequently over the heaviest used
parts of routes, and less frequently over the lesserused
parts. Suburban service is redesigned to be
more efficient and easier to understandwith some
newroute names and numbers and fewer confusing
route and trip variations. Some route segments and
three entire routeswith lowridership are discontinued.
Most express routeswill run fewer trips.
We thank you for your patience and understanding
during this period of transition.

A NON-COMMERCIAL WEBPAGE At no time does commerce transact on this site. If it had then it would require a Secure Sockets Layer certificate and a merchant account. Being a non-commercial site there are some licensing privledges that this site will participate in. Mystuffnow is an online radio station broadcasting twenty four hours daily. This station can be bet described as a hybrid format of adult contemporary, international and ad popular music. In a sense it may, be compared to compared random radio format, but mystuffnow has three dedicated day parts. These day parts include a morning, evening and overnight separate music selection. The morning and afternoon have a selection of classic rock and current hot hits. To make the station more unique a new track, or tracks from the overnight day part have been added to make the station stand out from traditional stations that broadcast locally. The overnight day part is called “After Hours” and mimics the general principals of a quiet storm programming style where as there are fewer commercials and the music is more adult in nature, not just in lyrics but the music is more unique, offering international and slower tracks. This is meant for relaxation or whatever you may be doing in the late night hours. This station is run by computerized traffic software. At any moment a live deejay can broadcast and a morning show or news programming is possible, all playlists are run automatically. One positive of this is the fact that the software ensures that all artists get paid their royalties and this station avoids any fines for digital media issues. Update: Mystuffnow is currently off the air.
