Folks living along Highway 103 will have a new option to get into the Downtown core. Metro Transit plans to add service to these areas via a newly branded bus service, “MetroX”.
A tender was awarded to Overland Custom Coach recently at a price tag of $1.35 million dollars for 10 buses. Overland manufactures motorcoaches for touring companies and schools, not the grade of vehicle used in the rest of Metro Transit’s fleet.
Amy Pugsley Fraser over a the Chronicle-Herald covers the story in detail, and writes:
“Future phases of MetroX will include service along the Highway 101, 102 and 107 corridors.”
