MTS making changes on La Jolla area bus routes

The SuperLoop, the high-frequency bus service circulating through University City, will expand into the La Jolla Colony area on Sept. 5.

The bus service — Metropolitan Transit Service (MTS) Routes 201 and 202 — was launched in June 2009, employing state-of-the-art, low-emission hybrid buses to provide frequent service within the UTC area.

In addition on that day, MTS and SANDAG are making changes to Route 30, moving it from its current alignment along Nobel Drive, Lebon Drive and Regents Road, to routing along La Jolla Village Drive. This change will provide more direct service with shorter trip times for this important regional route that services La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Old Town, and Downtown, a press release stated.

The expanded SuperLoop route will include stops at the Lebon Drive/Palmilla Drive and Regents Road/Arriba Street intersections. The route also will continue to serve UCSD, Westfield UTC shopping center, La Jolla Village Square, La Jolla Village Center and Executive Drive/Genesee Avenue office clusters.

Service operates seven days a week, with buses running every ten minutes during peak hours and every 15 minutes during non-peak hours.
