SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A local bus system unanimously approved new routes on June 26.

The company's executive director said "Saginaw is going to like what stars has produced" because the new route system was developed in partnership with members of the community.

The new routes will go into effect on Aug. 21.

"This new route system is the direct result of Saginaw telling STARS what is needed, so a big thank you is due to Saginaw. I also thank the Board for adopting the change. Since last fall, STARS has conducted hundreds of surveys, held two public hearings, hosted multiple round table discussions with many different community members, worked with community-based groups on outreach, and listened closely to our riders. I’m confident that the new system is a step in the right direction,” said Glenn Steffens, Executive Director of STARS.

“We aren’t finished yet. As we get replacement buses, we’ll add those in and expand these routes. The new system was designed with expansion in mind.”

In addition, the operating hours will be extended started Aug. 21.

During the week the buses will run from 5:55 a.m. to 8:55 p.m. and from 7:55 a.m. to 1:55 p.m. on Saturdays.
