Will EmX serve the South Willamette area?

Yes, but not on Willamette Street.  MovingAhead, a collaboration between Lane Transit District and the City of Eugene, is a current project to determine what improvements are needed on some of our most important transportation corridors for people using transit, and facilities for people walking and biking.  The corridor between downtown and Lane Community College has been identified as one of these key corridors, and although the preferred route will not been determined until 2016, the project team is not considering Willamette Street itself as an option for EmX.  However, there is interest from the community project oversight committee to bring EmX service close enough to the South Willamette area that it can provide additional transportation options to the neighborhood, and Amazon Parkway is being considered as a route. This is consistent with how EmX was considered during the Concept Plan process.
