• MST begins construction on bus stop upgrades in Seaside

    With civil construction completed on Monterey-Salinas Transit’s JAZZ Bus Rapid Transit stops in Monterey and Sand City, work will now shift to intersections in the City of Seaside. Beginning January 8, weather permitting, construction will begin at the two existing bus stop locations at the intersection of Fremont Boulevard and Broadway Avenue. In addition, a new bus stop will be installed on Broadway Avenue just uphill from the Fremont Boulevard intersection to accommodate MST JAZZ buses heading toward residential areas of upper Seaside.

    Because these two existing bus stops will be temporarily unavailable during construction, MST passengers should board at adjacent Fremont Boulevard locations near the corners of Amador Street (southbound) or Elm Street (northbound) Motorists traveling through the area should be aware of construction work taking place on the sidewalks and parking lanes adjacent to bus stop locations. To ensure the safety of construction workers, periodic lane closures will be required around work zones.

    MST thanks the public for patience during the construction period as bus stops are upgraded to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act standards and to include the new JAZZ Bus Rapid Transit service amenities.

    Customers with questions should call Monterey-Salinas Transit toll free at 1-888-MST-BUS1.
