On-hand staff can provide trip planning assistance and answer specific rider questions on the New Bus Network, their routes and bus stops. 
The table discussions and one-on-one meetings show customers rider tools, like the Dual Trip Planner, which is a side-by-side trip display tool, helpful for riders whose routes are changing.
