Beginning today, Grand Valley Transit is rolling out a series of route changes system operators say will improve reliability and travel time, enhance customer satisfaction and increase ridership.

Some of the more significant changes include eliminating Route 9B, which eliminates the stop at First Street south of Gunnison Avenue, due to low ridership; and shortening service times on Route 7 so that they end at 8:15 p.m., and adding Route 12.
