Construction detours and River Festival events cause route changes
Wichita Transit bus routes will change temporarily from Friday through May 15 to accommodate construction detours and River Festival goers. Up to 10 routes could be affected.
Specific details about routes, time points and the direction of travel are included on the Transit Web site. Riders who use public transit for their day-to-day transportation should consult the Web site, review the bulletin board inside the Transit Center or contact the information line for updates. The Web site includes changes by date and route, making it easier for riders to make adjustments.
Riders are encouraged to plan ahead for the next couple of weeks and make travel plans to allow for delays, detours and the increase in the number of people riding the bus.
“Pedestrian and vehicle traffic gets pretty heavy downtown during the River Festival,” said Assistant Transit Director Steve Ainslie. “We are working with Festival promoters to provide the best service possible during the event. Please expect some delays and plan accordingly.“
