Link Transit service expands on July 2

WENATCHEE — Hours of operation on many Link Transit routes operating within the Wenatchee/East Wenatchee area will increase beginning July 2. Also, there are additional trips coming to Route 21, which operates between Wenatchee and the Chelan/Manson area.

Service Monday through Friday is being added to:

  • Route 1 (South Wenatchee): New trips at 5:30 a.m., and 6:30, 7 , 8 and 9 p.m.
  • Route 5 (Central/North Wenatchee): New trips at 5:30 a.m. from WalMart, and 7, 8 and 9 p.m.
  • Route 8E (Wenatchee/East Wenatchee): New trips at 5:30 a.m., and 6:30, 8 and 9 p.m.
  • Route 8W (Wenatchee/East Wenatchee): New trips at 5:30 a.m., and 6:30, 7, 8 and 9 p.m.
  • Route 11 (East Wenatchee): New trip at 7:16 p.m.
  • Route 12 (East Wenatchee): New trip at 6:46 p.m.
  • Current A (Columbia Station/East Wenatchee): New trips at 7:30, 8, 8:30 and 9 p.m.
  • Route 21 (Wenatchee to Manson via Entiat): New trips at 6:30 a.m., 12:30, 2:30 and 6:15 p.m.

Also on July 2, the schedules for Route 20 (Wenatchee to Chelan via Orondo) and Route 26 (Wenatchee to Ardenvoir via Entiat) will be adjusted to accommodate changes in their routing. Route 20 will terminate in Chelan, and both routes will operate from Olds Station, rather than Columbia Station in Wenatchee. These changes will require a transfer to travel into or out of Wenatchee. In most cases these transfers do not add significant time to the overall trip length. To mitigate the additional cost of travel that these transfers may result in for some riders who pay cash for individual trips, a reduced fare day pass will become available for purchase on July 2.
