New Bus Service Provided to Pekin East
CityLink has made a minor adjustment to the #18 Pekin South Route to provide service to the UnityPoint Pekin East facility and the Avanti’s Dome, both located on Griffin Street, effective March 5, 2018.
The #18 will now provide hourly inbound service to the UnityPoint Pekin East facility and the Avanti’s Dome area at approximately 14 after the hour beginning at 7:14 a.m. through 5:14 p.m. The inbound departure time from Walmart will now be two minutes later at approximately 12 after the hour starting at 7:12 a.m. through 5:12 p.m.
“We have made the adjustment to the #18 Pekin South Route at the request of UnityPoint Healthcare to provide bus service to patients who utilize their new Pekin East facility on Griffin Street,” said CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs. “Fortunately, this change will have little to no impact on passengers that frequently use this route, and we have already started public outreach on the change to our Pekin riders,” continued Roelfs.
CityLink plans to work with UnityPoint to provide information on bus service to their patients, and will continue outreach to passengers for the next few weeks. The ridership performance of this route change will be evaluated in the coming months.
