REGARDING THE COMET’S PROPOSED Service Changes across the service area including the Northeast, Southeast, Lexington Routes


The COMET is required to reduce the number of service hours by 4,900 to stay within our budget for the 2019 fiscal year and beyond.  We will be restructuring service in the northwest (St. Andrews & Harbison) and adding service to the northeast (Killian Rd.) These changes will impact nearly every route within the system.  Most routes will see only schedule changes, but several will also have a route change.  Please review the following to be informed.
