Bloomington Transit will end service for routes 1 through 5 after 9 p.m., starting June 27. Late night service will be replaced by subsidized Uber or Lyft rides.
Under the new policy, riders will pay the first $1 of their trip, with BT paying up to $19. Wheelchair accessible vehicles can be requested from BT Dispatch at 812-336-7433.
Additionally, BT’s new bus routes will be in place August 15 after a two-year delay because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes include merging routes 1 South and 7 Express for a one hour runtime and 20 minute frequency, a redesign of Route 3 and a discontinuation of routes 8 and 10.
A proposed route that would loop around the city, Route 90, was scrapped due to staff shortages and a pushback against lower frequency routes.
