The City of Lethbridge’s bus service, cityLINK, has been a hot button topic since it was implemented earlier in August. Bridge City News has spoken to a number of Lethbridge residents who have complained about the efficiency of the program in the past. Lethbridge Transit General Manager, Tim Sanderson, says the city has heard the complaints and starting Wednesday new service level adjustments will be made to help improve the program.
Effective Wednesday, November 17:
- 4A/B will become 4 cityLINK Orange and will travel in only one direction along the original 4A pattern. This change is aimed at eliminating confusion as to where the bus stops and will help avoid missed pickups.
- 51 & 52 will have offset times when travelling along Columbia Blvd. This will give customers along Columbia Blvd between McMaster Blvd & University Drive 15 minute service to and from the University, Monday to Saturday.
- 52 Columbia – University Station added an early trip option at 6:20 a.m. to allow for more connection options at University Station.
- 62 departure time has been shifted to 5 minutes later to provide better connection at City Centre. This also adds more time for Lethbridge College students with late classes to catch the last bus which will now be at 9:10 p.m.
- ATB Centre has been added as a hub station for Demand Response Zones 101 & 102. Customers can now choose between two hubs within each zone to travel to.
- 101 West Highlands Stn. & ATB Centre
- 102 Sunridge Stn. & ATB Centre
Shelters are also being added to the hub stations to offer riders cover from the winter weather.
