AppalCART recently announced changes to their to fixed route service, which will take effect on Monday August 20.
Among the changes are the format of route maps and schedules. The new system map displays all of the stop locations and the routes that serve each stop location. The schedule for each route is displayed on the reverse side of the map. Stop times have been listed for key stops along each route. If a time is not listed for your stop location, then plan to arrive at your stop at the time listed for the key stop located just prior to your stop.
If your stop location is ASU Technology, you should identify the first key stop location prior to your stop, which is ASU Peacock Traffic Circle, and plan to arrive at your stop location at :23 or :53 to make sure you are able to board that bus.
