Starting Sunday, Sept. 23, Whatcom Transportation Authority will extend hours on Sunday bus routes and will also increase evening bus frequency on two routes: one between downtown Bellingham and the Fairhaven Transportation Center, and another serving Western Washington University and the Lincoln Creek Park and Ride.
The service expansion is funded by the city of Bellingham’s Transportation Benefit District.
With the changes, Sunday service will begin one hour earlier and end one hour later on all routes, except Route 105, which will not have extended hours in the evening. The changes also include WTA’s Specialized Transportation, for people with disabilities.
Route 401 (Downtown to Fairhaven Transportation Center) and Route 196 (WWU/Lincoln Creek) will now run buses every 30 minutes on weekdays and Saturdays. Route 401, which is on WTA’s “Red Line,” connects downtown Bellingham, including the Central Business District, with Greyhound and Amtrak terminals in Fairhaven.
