CK Transit(CitLink)

So since Route one is always late instead of adding a 5th route they add more to the other 3 so they can all be late at the same time. Interesting concept. Take away 52 stops in the process.

The city has a survay going right now about the transit. They are looking into the service maybe expanding it or modifying it. Gave them a ton of suggestions in the comment section.

And to add to this i was correct, ALL routes are always late(or early). You never know when the bus is going to be at your stop unless you have the App. You could be standing out there for 35-40 mins for a bus if you dont have it.

Its been in the design stage for a few years now. Will believe it when I see it. B was suppose to be theamsville-bothwell back when I was working for Aboutown but kept getting put off caused of funding. In 2012 we were designing a 5th city route as well but it got scrapped cause of funding as well. Instead they eliminated bus stops on all routes to save time.

That is good to see that the bus is still around. The Fitzjohn is owned by Reg DeNure.

He has quite the collection I hear. It's good to see older vehicles preserved.

Sounds like CK Transit is finally going to put a 5th run out to cover the newly opened casino on Richmond st and help easy the over loading on route 1 and adding mid day service for the urban routs.  Also will be looking at other issues like Sunday service and running later than 7:15(talking to a member of the CK transit task force)

Sounds like also adding a extra inter-urban run as well to fill the gap between 11:45-4:15. Suppose to start in September.  

 

Also city has been having public showing of possible revamped of the system. One shows city owned 30ft buses(was told likely Grande West as I guess there was a demo here last month that they really liked) with later hours, 5 routes and betier coverage. Another option is a dial-a-ride option. Having multiple vehicles and just call a stop number when you need a ride.

Havent been on much do to health issues but here is a big update for CK Transit. 

An on-demand pilot program for Chatham, running from January, 2020 until June 30th, 2021 with a request for the purchase of two new buses.

https://ckxsfm.com/on-demand-evening-service-proposed-for-ck-transit/

Was approved by council the other night

On a smaller note all inner city buses all have a C infront of the numbers now. so now150 is now C150.
