seems like a big time air carrier on the weekends this one however when combined with the 545 gives good weekend 1/2 hourly connection from browns plains to logan central. the portable information display on the buses are a great way to keep track of upcoming stops.I would say the trial is a success and hopefully these will be implemented on all mainstream routes.


545/550 are both the same in that for the majority of the day they carry 10-15 max. Then just the period before and after school they're full.


Yes.  Both these routes badly need 15 minute frequency 7:30-9am & 3:00-5:30pm.


545, 550, 560 and 572 would be my candidates for service every 15 minutes 6am-9pm.  Possibly 554 as well.
