Link Transit is proposing to make some minor improvements to services and is soliciting public input and comment on these proposals. These changes are scheduled to go into effect on July 7, 2014.
The proposed changes are:
Extend the current last trip back to Columbia Station at 7:25. This trip currently ends at WalMart at 6:50 PM.
Begin service at 8:00 AM, with 30 minute frequency until 10 AM, and additional trips at 6:00 and 6:30 PM
Extend the last trip to Columbia Station at 6:55 PM, rather than ending at Olds Station.
Add a trip on the Route 8E, departing Columbia Station at 7:00 PM, and arriving back at Columbia Station at 7:55.
Add a trip on Saturday at 5:15 PM, arriving in Manson at 6:33 and back in Wenatchee at 7:56
Add a trip Monday - Friday on Route 22 to Leavenworth and other upper valley communites, departing Columbia Station at 8:00 PM. Add a trip on Saturday at 6:10 PM, arriving in Leavenworth at 7:07 and back in Wenatchee at 8:00.
The annual cost of this additional service is approximately $94,500. Link Transit’s 2014 operating budget is $10,725,000. Link Transit is funded through a voter-approved 4/10 of 1% local sales tax, a variety of state and Federal funding streams, fare revenue and other smaller revenue sources including advertising, leases and interest income.
