Proposed Bus Route Changes In Bismarck To Be ‘Reworked’
Proposed changes to Bismarck metro area's bus routes will be reworked after drawing complaints.
The Bismarck Tribune reports Bis-Man Transit's plan was to "cut fixed routes from 12 to six, eliminate 24-hour paratransit curbside service and ban healthy seniors from the paratransit service." The goal is to save money and keep the program viable.
Opponents to the plan testified before city commissioners for nearly three hours yesterday (Tuesday).
Commissioners decided that the plan needed to be redone; Mayor Mike Seminary said there still will have to be changes made to the service.
