Attention riders! We asked and you answered – thanks to the feedback from the more than fifty riders we spoke to in March, the Church of Christ stop on the Bridge Street route (Red) has now been added to the Shuttle route (Blue) as well! You can now ride the bus across the bridge to Walmart or take the shuttle loop back to the library to pick up another route from there. Please stay tuned for upcoming changes to our routes and services as we continue our 2022 pilot! Keep sharing your feedback with our drivers and other staff. Your input helps us serve the public more effectively and efficiently.
