Beginning Monday, Connect Transit buses in Bloomington-Normal will only stop at designated spots.  Connect Transit General Manager Andrew Johnson says the signs marking bus stops have been up for a few weeks now, and he hopes the public is ready for the transition. He says the new system will increase efficiency, and cut down on travel times.

Johnson says most rider feedback has been positive, and some comments have helped to realign the stops to a safer, or more convenient location.  He says ridership data was evaluated to determine the best spots to erect the green bus stop signs, Johnson says those signs cost about $50 each.
