MCT ANNOUNCES JANUARY 2021 SERVICE CHANGES


Route changes take effect Sunday, January 10, 2021



GRANITE CITY, ILL., December 30, 2020. . . In an effort to enhance bus service and access to employment, Madison County Transit (MCT) will be making service adjustments at the regularly scheduled January 10, 2021 Service Change. The January service change includes the reinstatement of select trips on the #1 Riverbend and the #6 Roxana – Pontoon Beach, as well as the addition of new service to the Orchard Shopping Center in Collinsville.

“MCT’s goal is to keep our community moving in the safest and most efficient way possible,” said MCT Managing Director SJ Morrison. “These enhancements will not only improve access to jobs, shopping, and services for our residents, the additional trips will help foster social distancing, especially on the busier routes.”

A summary of the changes, by route, is listed below. For detailed schedule information visit www.mct.org, call 618-797-INFO (4636) or e-mail info@mct.org.
