New Public Transportation Routes Start Tomorrow
Seeing progress on the new I-74 bridge is always exciting. But it can wreak havoc on your morning commute.
Luckily, public transportation in the Quad Cities is finding a way around that this week. Starting Monday, December 3, a new service will debut with two new transit routes to get Quad Citizens across the Centennial and I-74 Bridges.
According to KWQC, the service is called "STRETCH" and routes will run Monday through Friday from 5:45 a.m. to 6:35 p.m. The rides are free, and will offer free Wi-Fi. One route will travel from Burlington Coat Factory, across the I-74 bridge and into Centre Station.
The second route will also start at Burlington Coat Factory, but go through downtown Davenport, over Centennial Bridge and end at District Station in downtown Rock Island.
You can even watch the Stretch route in real time, with the Transloc Rider app. Hopefully, this new service will help with the impending winter weather as well!
