Huntsville bus changes planned to start July 1

News

Wednesday is the last day to put in your two cents about changes for Huntsville’s bus system.

The city is planning to extend weeknight service until 9:00 p.m., add Saturday service, and extend paratransit service out to city limits. Some routes will also change to add more direct and more two-way routes.

These changes are set to start on July 1st. On Wednesday city officials heard from folks at the Huntsville-Madison County Senior Center who depend on the service.

“Many of our clients don’t drive anymore, at least the ones that use the shuttle,” explained Senior Center Executive Director Tom Glynn. “So that’s their opportunity to get here, to doctors’ offices, grocery shopping. Our adult daycare center is particularly dependent on the shuttle.”

The last public hearing is Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Richard Showers Center.

The city got close to 1,000 survey responses on how to improve their transit system.
