EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Sun Metro is deactivating more than two-dozen Sunday service routes as they introduce two new Brio Systems – Alameda and Dyer – to the public transit system.

Brio provides riders with improved speed and reliability through traffic signal prioritization for its buses and offers upgraded amenities such as free WiFi, enhanced pedestrian pathways and lighting, and new branded and landscaped stations.

Sun Metro will implement schedule adjustments to existing routes to improve efficiencies and minimize the duplication of services as a result of the new Brio services
