Some changes are coming to the bus stops around South Bend and Mishawaka, and that change will begin in the form of 900 new signs.
Transpo is looking to do away with people flagging down buses on the street. Instead, the company wants people use a system of designated bus stops. Once the new signs are in place, riders will have 30 days to start using a designated stop to catch a ride, according to WSBT.
Transpo General Manager David Cangany believes the change will improve safety and efficiency, with drivers not stopping as often. Some of the stops will also feature shelters, based on the number of passengers at certain locations.
S.R. 9 was scheduled to get the first designated stop Tuesday morning. All 900 signs are expected to be up by the end of the year.
