KENDALL, Wash. — Recent snow accumulation has prevented Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA) buses from providing “Flex” service in addition to fixed-route service in the Kendall area. This has been difficult on residents who have depended on this service.
Officials with WTA announced today, Tuesday, December 28th, that an auxiliary bus equipped with tire chains will head out tomorrow to the Kendall area to provide a modified “Flex” service as it will make stops at the entrances of Oregon Trail loop as well as Peaceful and Golden Valley loops.
The auxiliary bus will gather riders and take them to the East Whatcom Regional Resource Center or to transfer to the regular 72X bus at the Kendall Fire Station.
The auxiliary bus will start with the first scheduled 72X trip and end at 6:30pm. Unlike, doorstep Flex service, there will no need to register for a ride.
Riders can call WTA at 360-676-7433 for more information.
