New Bus Schedules (effective August 20, 2018):
New Service Effective August 20, 2018
The new route will combine Tranpso Route 9 east of the Mishawaka Transfer Center with the Interurban Trolley Yellow Line. This route will operate every 30 minutes Monday through Friday, and every 60 minutes on Saturdays. Please see the New Yellow Line Schedule for full details.
Increased Regional Connectivity
The new Yellow Line Elkhart/Mishawaka route increases regional connectivity by improving the frequency of trips between downtown Elkhart and downtown Mishawaka. Currently, the Yellow Line Bittersweet is available every hour, which limits the number of connections possible within 15 minutes at the transfer centers. The new route will be available every 30 minutes during weekdays. By increasing the frequency, riders will be able to connect with nearly all public transit routes within 15 minutes at the transfer centers.
New Fares for the Yellow Line Elkhart/Misakawa Route
Fares will be free for the launch of the new route from August 20 to 26, 2018.
Please see the Yellow Line Elkhart/Mishawaka Route Schedule for full details.
