Final January Route Changes

Final January 2017 Changes – Go into Effect January 16, 2017

*Overall these changes create a more clock face system that will create more a transit system that comes at a more consistent time.  In addition, we will be using Kent Central Gateway and University Hospital as a place for buses to meet to allow for easier transfers so that passengers can freely move from one bus to another without having to wait long periods of time.
