WI: Commission Seeks Input on Bus Route

Before it might cancel an express bus route that began serving the northwest corner of Eau Claire last fall, the city's Transit Commission will hold a public hearing prior to making its decision.

Riders are welcome to provide their input on the Express 12 route at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at the Transit Commission meeting in the north conference room of City Hall, 203 S. Farwell St.

Express 12 was established in September as a connecting route to meet an intercity bus from Dunn County Transit that originated in Menomonie. But the Dunn County bus now drives directly to Eau Claire's downtown transfer center, making Eau Claire's connecting route obsolete, according to a city news release.
