This is a preliminary listing of route changes that will take place in the Red Arrow and Frontier divisions next week.

FRONTIER (Feburary 15/16)

ROUTE 99 Service re-routed in Royersford via Main St, 10 St, and Royersford Rd en route to Limerick Square Shopping Center; service re-routed in Phoenixville via PA 29, Bridge St, Main St, and Nutt Rd
"Minor schedule changes" will be implemented on Routes 92/133, 94, 96, 97, 131, and 201 (details to be posted as soon as new timetables are obtained). Schedules for the 204, 206, 207/WHIRL, and 314 will not change.

RED ARROW (February 16)

P&W/ROUTE 100 A new Norristown limited will depart from 69 St at 6:00am, stopping only at Ardmore Jct, Bryn Mawr, Radnor, and Gulph Mills; added Norristown Express/Bryn Mawr Local services between 6:00pm and 7:00pm.
ROUTE 101/102 Early morning times will be adjusted to improve connections to other routes at 69 St Terminal
ROUTE 105 New Sunday service between 69 St and Suburban Square/Ardmore Rail Station in Lower Merion
ROUTE 109 New OWL service; Revised weekday evening schedules between 6:00pm and 7:00pm
ROUTE 110 Two weekday "express" trips departing 69 St Terminal at 5:15pm and 5:45pm will operate non-stop to Township Line Rd (US 1)/Lansdowne Av via West Chester Pike
ROUTE 115 New weeknight evening service to DCCC/Southeast Campus on Elmwood Av in Sharon Hill (the new Southeast Campus replaces the Collingdale Center on MacDade Blvd)
ROUTE 123 Weekday peak service will be diverted to serve the Gulph Mills P&W Station (this must be a I-76 congestion related move, since it seems to defeat the purpose of the 123 to connect with the P&W at Gulph Mills)
ROUTE 124/125 Re-routed within Center City due to reconstruction of 13 St El/Subway-Surface station; buses will now depart from N 10 St between Market and Filbert Sts (Market East Station/Gallery at Market East), operating via Market to 15 St/JFK Blvd, and en route to King of Prussia and points north; buses to Center City will operate via Market, 16 St, Vine St and 10 St, making all stops along Market, at 16 St/JFK Blvd (Suburban Station); Broad St/Vine St; and at Market East.
"Minor schedule changes" will be implemented on Routes 104, 106, 108, 111, 112, 113, 114, 117/119, 120, 122, and 305 (details to be posted as soon as new timetables are obtained).

City Transit Division schedule changes will be posted and made available next week, with those timetables to change on February 22/23.
