CityBus considering changes to Happy Hollow route; seeks input, comments from public

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — CityBus officials are considering changes to a bus route and are asking for help from riders and the public. Public meetings are scheduled to discuss proposed changes to route “5 Happy Hollow,” which serves University Farm, Bar Barry Heights, Soldiers Home Rd., Happy Hollow Rd., River Rd. and the Purdue campus.

The proposal is available for review here:

“We are proposing the changes in response to customer comments, and to improve performance efficiencies,” said John Metzinger, Manager of Development. The proposal provides a more direct return trip to the Soldiers Home Rd. area while bypassing areas served by other bus routes.

Route changes are expected to have the following results:

  1. Better service for residents along Soldiers Home Rd. by providing a direct return trip.
  2. Service along Salisbury & Barlow will be discontinued.
  3. Service along S. Grant and Wood St. will be discontinued.
  4. Service along Catherwood will be discontinued.
  5. Weekday reduction in service of 1 hour 22 minutes.

Public meetings are scheduled for Monday, July 21st at 2:00PM and 5:00PM. Both meetings will be held at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 211 Knox Dr., West Lafayette, in Gathering Room 3. This location is served by the Happy Hollow bus.

CityBus operates a fleet of 73, including four hybrid buses. It logged nearly 4.7 million passenger trips in 2007, including more than 340,000 on the free downtown/Purdue trolley.
