Route 20 East Comstock Stopping Service January 6, 2020
Over the past year, Metro has been operating the Route 20 East Comstock Route as a pilot route to determine if the community would use a bus route serving the eastern portion of Comstock Township and the City of Galesburg area.
We have reviewed the past year’s ridership and determined that we will not continue to have the bus route starting January 6, 2020. Metro staff is in the process of posting signs as bus stops along the route that notify passengers of this change as well as reaching out to businesses and the community about the elimination of the route.
For those needing transportation, we have Metro Connect who provides curb to curb service in the community (269) 337-8477. Metro also provides carpool and vanpool assistance through our Ridesharing Program at www.kmetroride.com. Free carpool/vanpool matching is available. We are also available to assist in getting vanpools established by reaching out to companies and informing employees about the ridesharing program. For more information, call (269) 337-8222.
