Waynesboro bus routes may change

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Chambersburg Transit Authority, the agency running Waynesboro's struggling public bus transportation system, is considering cutting its one long route into two smaller ones in an effort to lure more riders in the borough, CTA executive director Eva Verdier said Thursday.
Her theory is that the single Waynesboro bus run, which runs for about an hour and 15 minutes, is too long. Adding a second Waynesboro bus would cut the trip down to about 45 minutes, she said. It would also add more stops.
"Everything is still in the planning stages," she said.
The authority is adding two buses to its fleet, bringing the number to 10, which is enough to add a bus for Waynesboro, she said.
Public bus service in Waynesboro began in the fall of 1997 as an experiment by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The goal was 10 riders an hour.
