MCT ANNOUNCES UPCOMING FEBRUARY SERVICE CHANGE

Service Change to Take Place February 5, 2017

GRANITE CITY, ILL., January 11, 2017. . . With employment opportunities growing at distribution centers in the IL-111 corridor, Madison County Transit (MCT) will improve service to both Gateway and Lakeview Commerce Centers at its upcoming service change on February 5. MCT will also make changes to trips on all three MCT Express routes in response to ridership decreases, due in large part to low fuel prices. Details of the changes are listed below.

In addition to the removal of trips as described below, MCT will also re-balance the schedules on these routes.
Also effective February 5, minor schedule changes will be made to the #1 Riverbend, the #6, the #12 Bethalto Shuttle, #17 Edwardsville-SIUE Shuttle, the #19 Edwardsville-Collinsville and the #20. Passengers are advised to consult an updated timetable, dated February 5 to verify trip times.
