Here are the highlights of AC Transit's expanded and improved services that go into effect Sunday:
n New linear routes replace confusing circular routes.
n More consistent service hours across days, nights and weekends.
n New and expanded lines, including service to the Silliman and Pacific Research centers in Newark, and improved service between the Union City and Fremont BART stations.
n Increased frequency and service hours on a number of lines.
n Elimination of "shopper shuttles" on the Line 300 series along with other lines and line segments that have low ridership and/or confusing route patterns.
n A new Line 200 in Fremont and Union City will run every 30 minutes from 6 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. It replaces Line 333, with more direct service to employment centers, shopping areas and other key locations.
