City Heights residents who want to ride an express bus along Interstate 15 will be able to pick it up in the freeway’s center lanes after all.

Buses will stop at platforms on the freeway, which passengers will be able to access using elevators or stairs from the overpasses above. The stations will be at University Avenue and El Cajon Boulevard.
