Please Yield To Buses

YIELD TO BUSES BIG BOX ADEvery day, more and more people are riding Link Transit to get where they need to go. This means that along all our urban area routes, every few blocks a bus may stop to pick up or drop off passengers, pulling out of traffic when there is room to do so. Sometimes this is not possible depending on the configuration of the roadway and the width of the parking lane.

If you happen to be behind a bus when it is signaling to get back into traffic, we ask that you please yield to the bus. This allows the bus driver to safely merge back into traffic while maintaining their schedule for those riding the bus,a nd waiting further down the route for the bus to arrive on schedule. It only takes a few seconds for the bus to get moving again, and then everyone can continue safely on their way.

Our drivers and our passengers thank you for this courtesy.

Activities You Can Get To On Public Transit in Chelan and Douglas Counties

Leavenworth Shoppers

Have you ever thought of taking Link Transit on a day trip to Chelan or Leavenworth, where you can eat, drink, and shop to your hearts content? Summer is jsut around the corner, and is a great time to get out and enjoy all that our area has to offer. So grab another mom and all your kids, and make a day of it in Chelan, Leavenworth or Cashmere. 

When you ride the bus, you don't have to worry about parking, and you can even enjoy a few glasses of local wine or a couple of steins of cold beer, and have to worry about driving home. Plus it is a good way to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way and to visit with friends. And kids love riding the bus!

Round trip fare is only $5.00 and buses run about every hour in each direction, and up to 4 kids aged 12 and under can ride free with each fare-paying adult.

Parking in Wenatchee is available at Olds Station Park and Ride, or in downtown Wenatchee at Columbia and Kittitas. This lot is small, so there may be limited availability.

There are two routes that serve Chelan. Route 20 travels on the Douglas County side of the river, and operates 5 trips per day M - F, and Route 21 travels through Entiat and operates 12 trips per day M - F, and 5 trips on Saturday.

Route 22 serves Leavenworth with 20 trips per day M - F, and 6 trips on Saturday.

For more information, please contact Guest Services at 662-1155.
