Service Changes Effective June 19, 2022

2022 Annual Service Plan

Each year the Ben Franklin Transit (BFT) Board of Directors adopts and Annual Service Plan to better align service planning and delivery. The 2022 Annual Service Plan (ASP) focuses primarily on service efficiency, effectiveness and reliability. 

We make service changes annually to reflect changes in demand and increase efficiency to help our riders get to their destinations.

Route 66 - Elimination

As part of planned service enhancements to Route 67, Route 66 will be eliminated due to low ridership and availability of nearby alternatives. Resources will be reallocated to provide enhanced service every 30 minutes on Route 67.

BFT will still get you where you need to go!
