The proposal includes three changes to the Nampa/Caldwell fixed route service, two changes to inter-county service between Ada and Canyon counties, along with minor changes to three Boise routes — Route 10 (Hill Road/Maple Grove), Route 16 (VA shuttle) and Route 17 (Warm Springs).
The proposed changes are to improve on-time performance, maximize existing transit resource and accommodate growth near the existing service areas.
Any changes to existing ValleyRide bus service would be implemented in August 2016.
ValleyRide is holding two public meetings on the proposed changes:
