Route Changes Coming to Byron Township Contracted Service on January 18

Route 1 - Division service in Byron Township will decrease from every 30 minutes to every 60 minutes on January 18, 2021.

The Rapid is announcing schedule changes to the portion of Route 1 - Division operating in Byron Township. The decision to reduce the level of contracted service provided within the township by The Rapid was made by the Byron Township Board of Trustees on December 28, 2020.

Beginning on January 18, 2021, the following changes to Route 1 - Division service will be implemented:

  • Route 1 will serve the existing Byron Township “loop” (Division Avenue south of 60th Street, 68th Street from Division to Clyde Park, and Clyde Park north to the 54th Street Meijer) every 60 minutes from approximately 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
    • Before the reduction of Byron Township’s contract, service was provided every 30 minutes.
  • The portion of Route 1 serving Byron Township during the schedule outlined above will be designated as Route 1B (Byron).
  • GO!Bus paratransit service will maintain its normal schedule in Byron Township Monday through Friday, and will be available from approximately 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

This service change is the result of a reduced annual contract with Byron Township.

In addition to the schedule change on the Byron Township portion of Route 1 - Division, service will be added to Metro Health Village via 54th Street and Gezon Parkway. This service will be designated Route 1M (Metro) and will operate every 60 minutes from approximately 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and every 30 minutes on weekday and Saturdays evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 10:15 p.m., as well as all day on Sunday from approximately 6:30 a.m. to 7:15 p.m.
