QuoteCCTA to get more new Buses, service changes, and other goodies.If you like CCTA's newest buses, get ready to see more. On Tuesday, CCTA's board members signed off on a contract with New Flyer Industries for 150 Xcelsior XD60 articulated buses. This is part of CCTA's newest initiative to expand capacity and coverage to the region. The new buses will replace the current articulated buses that currently run on the 319 line. The newer buses will be running on the 34/35 routes and the 301 and 319 +Direct service, with some seeing service on other lines. The older buses will not be scrapped, though. Since they have enough mileage and are in relatively good condition, they will be sent to GREAT to help them expand their fleet and meet increasing ridership demands. In terms of local service changes, the 34 and 35 will be cut back to City Hall from Navy Pier - Waterfront Museum to cut down on trip times. Passengers in need of Navy Pier from the Greenville and Springfield areas must transfer to the 301 at City Hall.

The addition of artics to the route came in late February 2017 after complaints of crowded buses from drivers and passengers. Rumor is, the line may become 80% artic and 20% standard by July 2017. A new bus depot named South Cayuga City is expected to open soon. So far, the only route that will be transferred there is the 17. Route 62 will operate out of there using 30-foot buses. When more info is available it will be posted. CCTA is looking into the options of expanding bus service in the outlying suburbs. An anonymous official has said that they are considering opening a Lakeland Bus Depot to be shared with Lakeland Bus Lines. There are talks of either restructuring or eliminating the 102 bus. If it is restructured, it will be extended to Greenville High School. If it is eliminated, the 113 will make an extra stop at the Transit Hub to accommodate 102 passengers before continuing to Cayuga City.[/l][/l]
