Fort Worth (CBSDFW.COM) – Beginning Sunday, February 1, The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) will make adjustments to 10 bus routes. The changes are being made to improve efficiency and access for customers.

One change will accommodate the construction of a new Trinity River bridge near downtown. There will be a shift in a portion of Route 10-Bailey to West 7th Street to bypass a portion of White Settlement Road.

By shifting the schedule to five minutes earlier on Route 26 – Ridgmar Mall/Normandale this will improve bus connections with other routes.

Minor changes also will be made on the following bus routes:
Rt. 1- Hemphill;
Rt. 1b – North Main;
Rt. 6 – 8th Ave/ McCart/Hulen Mall;
Rt. 7 – University;
Rt. 32 – Bryant Irvin;
Rt. 61 – Normandale Express;
Rt. 72 – Hemphill/Sycamore School Road;
Molly the Trolley – Discontinue the “The Hop” extension after 6 p.m.

Curvie Hawkins, AVP of Planning for The T stated, “The T evaluates routes three times a year and makes changes in response to development, population shifts and feedback from customers in order to maintain efficient operation and improve ridership experience.”

The route and schedule changes are currently posted on buses and on The T’s website.
