June 16 Launch of ThinkLink

thinklink

Join the community conversation on the future of our public transit.

This conversation is intended to bring to the forefront a host of ideas and suggestions on how Link Transit can better serve the residents of Chelan and Douglas Counties with relevant, convenient, reliable and financially sustainable public transportation services.

Over the past twenty-five years, Link Transit has evolved into a necessary, valuable and integral asset to each of our communities, large and small.
There is change happening in every community we serve, and our populations are shifting and growing in many ways. This growth is predicted to continue for many years.

As Link Transit enters it's second quarter century of service and looks toward the future, there are questions that need answering.

• How do the citizens of our area see the need for expanding transit services to address the recent population growth, and that anticipated in the coming years?

• Can and should our public transit system play a larger role to help address some of the transportation challenges these changes bring?

• Are there different ways to provide service that would attract more people to use transit or increase their access to transit?

Your input is critical in helping chart the future of Link Transit. Over the coming months, we will provide many ways in which you can participate in this effort.

Public meetings will held throughout our service area, and the website letsthinklink.org will be available beginning June 10 as a way to submit your comments and suggestions. We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
