Service changes for Pasadena’s popular Area Rapid Transit System (ARTS) buses are being implemented as part of an ongoing effort to improve customer service, including changes to Route 10, Route 20 and Route 51/52.
• More direct service along Colorado Boulevard in the Central District for Route 10
• Increased frequency of service on the heavily used Route 20
• Schedule adjustments on Route 51/52 in response to riders’ requests.
Route 10 will now operate on Colorado Boulevard in both directions between Pasadena Avenue and Lake Avenue, improving the connection between Old Pasadena and City Hall to the Playhouse and South Lake Districts. Route 10 will still service a portion of Green Street between Orange Grove Boulevard and Pasadena Avenue.
Extra bus service is also coming to Route 20—the City’s most popular route—on Lake Avenue and Fair Oaks Avenue. As part of a three-year, $1.9 million federal grant, the City is adding bus service in both directions during the weekdays.
Riders on Route 51/52 will notice a schedule adjustment to improve on-time arrival performance based on customer input. Many of the previously scheduled “stop times” have been shifted—in some cases by several minutes—so all riders are advised to check updated schedules on the City’s website. This route serves Old Pasadena, the South Raymond corridor, both Art Center College of Design campuses
