Metrobus Zip Network Begins in New Year
last updated 12/7/2021 9:15:00 AM
Today, St. John's City Council announced funding and improvements to public transportation in St. John's with the launch of Zip Network, which will improve offerings and increase frequency on multiple Metrobus routes starting in the new year.
The service improvements are part of a commitment by City Council to implement more frequent bus service. The budget for this improvement was originally approved in 2019, but implementation was put on hold due to pandemic restrictions.
"We are pleased to offer this improved service to Metrobus riders," said Councillor Ian Froude, member of the St. John's Transportation Commission. "Council is committed to public transportation, and more frequent bus service on the core routes is something we know users are anxious to see implemented."
The Zip Network will offer improved service to Routes 1, 2, 3 and 10, beginning January 3, 2022.
Impacted Routes will see increased and consistent frequency throughout the day. Service will be available on these routes earlier in the morning and extending later in the day.
Zip Network Routes will offer:
15-minute frequency weekdays, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
30-minute frequency weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
30-minute frequency on Saturdays, daytime until 6 p.m.
Funding of approximately $500,000 for 2022 is slated to be approved as part of the upcoming budget, to be presented to City Council on December 13, 2021.
"As we prepared for the upcoming budget, we heard through our public engagement processes the importance of public transit," explained Councillor Ron Ellsworth, council lead on Finance. "We believe this is a sound investment that demonstrates the City's strategic commitment to being a city that moves."
Metrobus gets a jump on traffic
last updated 2/2/2021 3:25:00 PM
Please do not follow a bus through the intersection on the transit priority signal - doing so would be going through a red light.
New queue-jump technology lets buses bypass traffic
The intersection of Freshwater Road and Stamps Lane has been equipped with a transit queue jump - a white bar signal added to the top of the traffic light. Once activated, the signal allows buses travelling east on Freshwater Road toward Elizabeth Avenue, to jump ahead and proceed through the intersection before traffic waiting at the light gets the green signal. Essentially, the white bar acts as a green light for Metrobus only.
The queue jump is part of the overall Transit Priority system that was installed last year with funding under the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund. Every Metrobus is equipped with a unit that communicates with traffic signal equipment installed at a number of intersections throughout the city. In addition to queue jump technology, the equipment can either shorten the red light, or hold the green light for buses approaching certain intersections, meaning less time spent for buses waiting at intersections.
"Transit priority systems are in many cities and are of great benefit in improving schedule adherence and reliability, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving fuel performance of the fleet," says Metrobus General Manager, Judy Powell. "We look forward to the benefits this system provides to our Drivers in making it easier to maintain schedule."
There are sixteen intersections in the city equipped with transit priority technology; seven intersections are programmed to work at all times while the remaining nine are programmed to only activate when the bus is five or more minutes behind schedule.
Metrobus accepts delivery of three new thirty-foot buses
last updated 3/20/2018 8:41:15 AM
The St. John's Transportation Commission (Metrobus) has accepted delivery of three new thirty-foot buses to replace three forty-foot models that are being retired later this month.
Fully wheelchair accessible and with seating for 24 passengers, the Vicinity Bus is one of the quietest on the market, both inside and out. The "close and seal" door design reduces noise on board and reduces air draft preserving heat within the bus during the colder months and keeps the cool air in during the summer months. The lighter and smaller thirty-foot design boasts improved fuel economy, resulting in 30 percent savings in fuel consumption, making public transit an even more environmentally-friendly option for residents of St. John's.
Judy Powell, General Manager of Metrobus, says the buses will be used on some feeder routes operated by Metrobus. "The Vicinity buses are an excellent fit for our service allowing us to efficiently service some of our less busy routes and realize significant savings in fuel costs," says Powell.
The three Vicinity buses, sold and supplied by Grande West Transportation in Aldergrove, BC, will be in service by the end of March. Photos and videos of the new thirty-foot Metrobuses can be viewed online at metrobus.com/Vicinity.

Metrobus Driver receives national Heroism Award
last updated 11/29/2015 8:46:59 AM
A Driver with the St. John's Transportation Commission has been recognized for the role he played in saving the life of a young woman who was hit by a vehicle when attempting to cross Water Street in St. John's this past August.
Metrobus Transit Operator, Max Benson, received a National Heroism Award this morning during a ceremony held during the Canadian Urban Transportation Association's Annual Conference in Montreal. To be considered for the award, an individual within the public transit industry must perform a heroic act; one in which no full measure of responsibility exists between the award recipient and the endangered party, and the recipient must go above and beyond the call of duty.
Benson had been employed with Metrobus for less than three years on the night of August 1 when he witnessed a young woman being struck by an eastbound van on Water Street. The victim came to rest beneath the tailpipe of a car that had recently been parked, about ten feet in front of Benson's bus. Benson immediately radioed to a Transit Supervisor to call 911 before grabbing the on-board first aid kit and exiting the bus to tend to the victim.
The victim lay unconscious with a very weak pulse from a head wound when Benson arrived at her side; he immediately compressed the wound and the victim's pulse became stronger. Benson then used his other hand to protect the victim's face from coming into contact with the hot muffler, causing him to suffer second-degree burns on the back of his hand. When the police, fire trucks and ambulance arrived, they immediately removed the young woman from the scene and transported her to the hospital.
"It's just an incredible story of heroism," says Metrobus General Manager, Judy Powell. "We're all proud of Max and we're thrilled that the Canadian Urban Transportation Association has recognized what Max did on that night in August."

Metrobus wins three national awards for marketing
last updated 8/2/2013 7:10:22 AM
The St. John's Transportation Commission has been recognized with three national awards for excellence in marketing.
All three awards were related to Metrobus' implementation of a national loyalty program, AIR MILES, making Metrobus the first public transit agency in the world to award the loyalty points on a per ride basis. The innovative partnership helped Metrobus achieve a six per cent ridership increase from the program's inception in May of 2012 to the end of the year.
The first award was presented to Metrobus during the Canadian Urban Transit Association Annual Conference held in St. John's in June, and was in recognition of an exceptional development and implementation of marketing and communications initiatives pertaining to advertising, internal and external corporate communications and public relations.
The other two awards were presented in Toronto at the annual Air Miles Marketing Excellence awards; one award in the Community & Sustainability category and the other in the New Sponsor Launch category.
Metrobus General Manager says all employees should be proud of the national attention. "It takes a real team effort to implement a national loyalty program and be able to achieve the success we have achieved," says Powell. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Air Miles program which provides our customers with an exceptional reward for choosing to ride public transit in St. John's."
