TriCounty Link, the regions rural public transit provider, will roll out a series of route and service modifications across the system, effective Tuesday, Sept. 4.

The changes, which follow a recent Comprehensive Operational Analysis and public input meetings, are being made to increase efficiency, provide better connections and, in some cases, offer expanded service.

With ridership of more than 100,000 annually, TriCounty Link provides an invaluable connection for many rural residents to jobs, healthcare and more, said TriCounty Link executive director Ron Mitchum. By comprehensively analyzing the service and taking action, the system is now in position to operate more efficiently, making the most of available resources to better serve riders.
