The new Route 5 connects DART Central Station to Merle Hay Mall. Rider benefits of the realignment include improved connection points, increased service hours and more accessibility in neighborhoods with transportation needs.
The realignment is part of ongoing efforts to improve public transit throughout the Greater Des Moines region. Public meetings were held in April 2015 for the public to review and provide feedback on the proposed realignment of the two routes.
