Let's compare

Now that you've learned about both service options, let's look at how they compare. Both service options assume the same level of growth. The table below outlines how we propose allocating resources for both the frequency and coverage service options. We also compare the options with today's service, including example travel times from various destinations throughout the city.

Don't forget to answer the final two survey questions at the bottom of the page!
