I’ve been riding this bus for about 3 months, it’s ridiculously crowded now. I unfortunately get on this bus @ 35th and Avalong, and lately it’s been just passing by due to it being full.
The bus used to empty out on 3rd and Seneca and be left with a few Amazon stragglers going to SLU. Now the bus is still full when it reaches SLU… did a new company open a office past this stop?
Hopefully they increase the frequency, one every 10 minutes during rush hour is not enough..
The 10-minute thing is just an average too. I waited 18 minutes between two C buses this morning at your exact spot. And of course it was full. Then the next one came one minute later. Stupid.
As for crowdedness. You should have seen it 3-4 years ago. Oh the glory days.
Ridership picks up when the school year begins. IMO that’s the main reason. I agree with increasing the frequency of buses.
FWIW, in ten days, on the Saturday, September 23rd Shake-Up, Metro is adding runs to Rapid Ride C, and other local routes:
