  Strong Moderate Neutral Moderately Negative Strongly Negative
Remove segments north of downtown Westbrook on Cumberland St., Bridge St., Myrtle St. and Brown St. (The Blue Line will replace the Route 4 in these areas).
Increase frequency (meaning more trips per hour) to segments south of downtown Westbrook on Mechanic Street and to IDEXX.
Expand the Route 4 to serve the Hamlet mobile home park located on Saco Street south of IDEXX.
Stop entering the Hannaford Plaza off William Clark Drive - replace with new bus stops installed on William Clark Drive.

* 13. What are your thoughts on these proposed changes to the Route 2 (Forest/Bridgton): Metro proposes to reduce frequency from every 30 to 60 minutes between Forest/Riverside (Hannafords) and Pride's Corner - this change would also reduce frequency of service on East Bridge Street, Austin Street and Pride Street. Please note there would be NO change to frequency between Forest/Riverside and downtown Portland.
