LCTA Night Bus Service To Start Sept. 24
The long wait for nighttime bus service in Luzerne County will end this month. The Luzerne County Transportation Authority will initiate night bus service on Sept. 24, authority officials announced today. The first 30 days of the service, until Oct. 24, will be free to riders who board after 7 p.m., according to Norm Gavlick, the authority’s executive director. The night service will feature five routes that will cover the busiest areas of the county, with a focus on transporting second- and third-shift workers to and from their jobs, Gavlick said. The nighttime routes will service Hanover industrial Park, CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park, Mohegan Sun Pocono casino and the Wyoming Valley Mall, among other locations. “The focal points for the night service routes will be the epicenters of employment, commerce and social activities throughout Luzerne County,” an LCTA news release states. The last bus on a night route will return to the intermodal center in Wilkes-Barre at 1:12 a.m. Night service schedules will be available at the LCTA website as well as at the intermodal center, the LCTA office on Northampton Street in Kingston, the Wyoming Valley Mall, the Anthracite Newsstand and Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke.
