Express Route Service
Express Route Service reduces travel time by going long distances between destinations with little or no stops. Express service may stop at several close pick up points and then travel non-stop to a final destination point.

¨ Increase Roadway Capacity
¨ Manage System Efficiency
þ Reduce Local Demand (Reduces vehicular demand)
Express Route Service increase passenger throughput because multiple passengers use the service at once. The reduction in vehicle trips reduces the demand placed on the facility.
