Intercity Transit proposes September 2020 service changes
Public invited to learn about and provide feedback on proposed changes

Olympia, WA – Intercity Transit will conduct a public hearing Wednesday, June 3, 2020, 5:30 p.m. at the business office, 526 Pattison St. SE in Olympia, if allowable under the public meeting guidance of the “Safe Start Washington: A Phased Approach to Recovery.” If an in-person public meeting is not permitted, other opportunities to give public comment will be available. Further details about how to provide public comment via telephone or remote means will be posted at intercitytransit.com. The hearing is to receive public comment on proposed Intercity Transit bus route and schedule changes for possible implementation on September 20, 2020.

On May 6, 2020 the Intercity Transit Authority reviewed options for improving local bus service including minor schedule adjustments on several routes and a realignment of Route 42 at South Puget Sound Community College. The proposed service changes are to improve route safety and efficiency.

The community is invited to learn about the proposed changes on our website at intercitytransit.com/servicechanges and can provide public comments prior to the hearing:

Comments must be received by 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 3, 2020 to be considered.

Intercity Transit is continuing to follow Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, which has resulted in the temporary suspension of fixed route bus service until further notice. The changes being proposed for September 20, 2020 are contingent upon the reinstatement of fixed route service.
