Wichita Transit discontinues South Side Connector route
Wichita Transit will discontinue the South Side Connector route effective August 6 and resume the previous South Main schedule. After a year and a half of service, the South Side Connector route did not meet the needs of riders making connections to other routes from downtown. Wichita Transit will return to the original South Main schedule with three buses running every 30 minutes. South Main will serve all stops formerly served by the South Side Connector, including the Dillons at 47th and MacArthur and the Youthville stop.
“We like to give a route plenty of time to develop a rider base,” Assistant Transit Director Steve Ainslie said. “However; the South Side Connector did not meet our expectations.”
Revised South Main route schedules are available at the Transit Center lobby or at www.wichita.gov. For more information about Transit services, please call 265-7221.
