Connectors are short distance buses that will be intended to get people of the served communities to essential resources, and to a primary bus route. Current examples of connectors can include the 60: Walnut-Crawford, the 79: East Hills, and 89: Garfield. Under the ACTA Plan, connectors will form a significant backbone for the bus system. This will reduce the number of buses that needs to serve Downtown, and may even alleviate the need for some passengers to board primary buses to get to an essential resource which then means less crowding.
Under the ACTA Plan, a Connector will have a fare of $1.50, and transfers can be acquired for $1.00 which will apply to another connector, secondary, or primary route. Schedules for Connectors will vary based on the need of the community. Those with Funicular Inclines are less likely to have longer services.
Routes ending in the number 0 (zero) will be loops. This will mean that the route will predominantly function in one direction through the route. Loops will be used for neighborhoods where there are hills in which case, the loop will likely go up the hill, or in areas with a lot of one way streets. Because of these aspects, most loops will also likely be shuttles.
