In an effort to help Mainers get around easier Metro has announced two new bus routes and a fleet of new buses coming soon.

There will be 11 new buses in the Portland area with passenger service throughout the summer. These new buses will have Wi-Fi and USB ports.

Beginning in August Metro will launch "Route Three" bus service connecting Westbrook and South Portland which means you won't have to go through Portland to get to South Portland anymore and that will save time!

The other route will be called the "Husky Line" which will travel through Westbrook, as it connects the USM campuses in Portland and Gorham.

The new routes are expected to launch in August.
