Senior center hosts talk on WTA route changes

Bus riders with lingering questions about the Whatcom Transportation Authority’s (WTA) recent route changes are invited to stop by the Blaine Senior Center from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 20 for answers.

WTA director of service development Rick Nicholson will stop by to summarize route changes, discuss ridership levels, accept feedback and more. Route and schedule changes went into effect on March 19 and come out of a strategic plan approved by WTA’s board of directors last year.

The changes included an increase of service on weekdays through a new route 75 Blaine/Birch Bay – Bellingham, which replaced 55 Blaine/Birch Bay – Cordata and the 70X Blaine – Bellingham/WWU routes. WTA no longer provides service from Blaine and Birch Bay to Grandview Industrial Park, Custer or Western Washington University.
