Changes to commuter service schedule, beg. Feb. 3

We are making some tweaks to our commuter service schedule, beginning Monday, Feb. 3. Our fourth morning route will be discontinued due to very low ridership.

We will also add a new stop in Grand Meadow on our earliest morning route at 5:36 a.m. Lastly, we are pushing back our afternoon departures by a few minutes to accommodate frequent delays we have experienced on Second Street Southwest in Rochester during rush hour.

These changes have already been communicated to our current riders and will be reflected on our website beginning Feb. 1.
