Bus Route Changes to the Community Connector Schedule Take Effect July 22nd
BANGOR, MAINE – The Community Connector has announced changes to its bus route schedules that will take effect on Monday, July 22, 2019. All maps and schedules are available for download on the City of Bangor’s website at www.bangormaine.gov/mapsandroutes. Printed schedules will be available at locations throughout the greater Bangor area next week.
Some of the catalysts for the schedule changes include the relocation of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which recently moved from the Griffin Road to its new location on Maine Avenue. Passengers can now access the DHHS facility on the Hammond Street Route. In addition, changes were recently made to the exterior of the Maine Veterans’ Home, allowing passengers to access it on the Mount Hope Route. New bus shelters have been added on Corporate Drive near DHHS, as well as on the Davis Road.
The Community Connector is the greater Bangor area’s public transit system. In September 2018, it was awarded a $2.89M grant from the Federal Transit Authority to update its bus fleet, maintain bus service levels, and meet increasing service needs.
