Commuting into downtown Omaha may be getting faster Monday morning.
A new bus route connecting Papillion, La Vista and Ralston to downtown Omaha is cutting time off an old route.
"Route 93" now starts in Papillion at 84th and Giles, making stops along 84th street before getting onto Interstate 80 to going to downtown Omaha. The route used to take 45 minutes to complete and now it's estimated to take just 31.
This week, Metro Transit is offering free rides to anyone wanting to take the bus to encourage ridership.
