Link Celebrates 25 Years

25 HEADER

Nearly 25 years ago, the first Link Transit buses rolled out and began operating what was the first public transit service in Wenatchee in over 25 years, and the first ever public transit system in our region. Over these past 25 years, Link has grown to be an invaluable community asset, and an integral part of the infrastructure of our communities, providing access to work, school, medical, shopping and recreation for people throughout our area. To date, more than twenty five million people have ridden a Link Transit bus. Those who ride transit are your friends, neighbors, co-workers, customers and employees. Without the support of our communities and all our residents, Link would not be able to provide the quality service that you have come to expect.

On December 16, Link celebrates 25 years of service. To commemorate this occasion, we are going to have some fun. The week of December 12-16, we are having a text-to-win contest. You can find out how you can enter this by riding one of our buses beginning December 12, or by visiting Columbia Station. On Friday, December 16, we will draw names from all entries and give away 13 gift cards ranging in value from $25 to $225.

Official Rules of this contest:

1. No more than two entries per person per day, up to twelve total  during contest.
2. Entries must include name, email and phone number
3. You may also enter at Columbia Station if you do not have access to texting
4. Drawing for all prizes will be held at noon on Monday, December 19, 2016
5. Winners will be notified via email and/or text message by 5 PM, December 19
6. Prizes must be picked up at Columbia Station by 6 PM on Friday, December 23
7. No substitution of prizes
8. Only one prize awarded per person
9. No purchase necessary to enter
10. Winners must be at least 13 years of age
11. Entries accepted beginning 12:01 AM on Monday, December 12, 2016
12. Entries accepted until 11:59 PM, Saturday, December 17, 2016

Ride For Free!

On Friday, December 16, all routes will be fare-free all day long. If you've never ridden the bus, this is a great way to get out and try Link Transit. And it won't cost you a dime!! Also on Friday, our drivers will be handing out some treats to all of our guests.

Please Yield To Buses

YIELD TO BUSES BIG BOX ADEvery day, more and more people are riding Link Transit to get where they need to go. This means that along all our urban area routes, every few blocks a bus may stop to pick up or drop off passengers, pulling out of traffic when there is room to do so. Sometimes this is not possible depending on the configuration of the roadway and the width of the parking lane.

If you happen to be behind a bus when it is signaling to get back into traffic, we ask that you please yield to the bus. This allows the bus driver to safely merge back into traffic while maintaining their schedule for those riding the bus,a nd waiting further down the route for the bus to arrive on schedule. It only takes a few seconds for the bus to get moving again, and then everyone can continue safely on their way.

Our drivers and our passengers thank you for this courtesy.

One Day Wanders

Activities You Can Get To On Public Transit in Chelan and Douglas Counties

Leavenworth Shoppers

Have you ever thought of taking Link Transit on a day trip to Chelan or Leavenworth, where you can eat, drink, and shop to your hearts content? Summer is jsut around the corner, and is a great time to get out and enjoy all that our area has to offer. So grab another mom and all your kids, and make a day of it in Chelan, Leavenworth or Cashmere. 

When you ride the bus, you don't have to worry about parking, and you can even enjoy a few glasses of local wine or a couple of steins of cold beer, and have to worry about driving home. Plus it is a good way to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way and to visit with friends. And kids love riding the bus!

Round trip fare is only $5.00 and buses run about every hour in each direction, and up to 4 kids aged 12 and under can ride free with each fare-paying adult.

Parking in Wenatchee is available at Olds Station Park and Ride, or in downtown Wenatchee at Columbia and Kittitas. This lot is small, so there may be limited availability.

There are two routes that serve Chelan. Route 20 travels on the Douglas County side of the river, and operates 5 trips per day M - F, and Route 21 travels through Entiat and operates 12 trips per day M - F, and 5 trips on Saturday.

Route 22 serves Leavenworth with 20 trips per day M - F, and 6 trips on Saturday.

For more information, please contact Guest Services at 662-1155.

And if you choose to stay in the Wenatchee area, there are three routes throughout Wenatchee and East Wenatchee that are fare free: Current A, B and C.
