Comparison

People will likely be more able to understand how the ACTA system will affect them by doing a comparison of the current routes along with the details of new routes in Phase 1, and Phase 2. In Phase 2, if there are any subway lines, or busway extensions, these will be reflective to that.

There will be other routes that will be in service. These routes will however replace many of the current PAT Routes. The system is designed to reduce repeat routes, allow adjustments to areas while increasing minimal demand of cost, and provide for a clean and simple system. With fewer routes serving to Downtown, the area can have a consolidated station for all routes which will be a golden station for almost all passengers that uses Downtown to transfer to another route.

For those that are concerned with the Y Routes, all connections are made at Brentwood Junction, and will connect with the S4: Brentwood Rapid which will serve the PAT South Busway.
