The purpose of a route study is a review of the efficiency of the current transit system and to identify opportunities for any improvements. Some of these improvements could include:
- Shorten headways
- Providing more efficient service to essential businesses or organizations such as healthcare, grocery stores, social services, colleges and universities.
- Make the system easier to use for current riders with the hope of encouraging more people to use the system
- Preparing for any growth the city or town may experience in the near future.
