Beginning next year, Lexington’s mass transit system will make numerous changes to its services.  Those include adding two-way Sunday service on routes 1-13.  The Lextran Board made the decisions Wednesday.  Some of the proposed changes were outlined to Lexington council members earlier this week.  Board Chair Jeff Fugate says improvements to the Vine Street transit center are also being considered.  “If you’ve been down there it’s a tough spot, but almost all of our riders, in fact up to around seven to eight hundred an hour will transfer there at its busiest peaks,”  said Fugate.

Lexington city leaders are continuing efforts to boost ridership on Fayette County's mass transit system. New General Manager Carrie Butler says Lextran expects to welcome its five millionth customer next year. Butler addressed council last week.    "We really would like to improve our travel time down some of the major corridors," said Butler. "That will allow us to operate our vehicles at the same level, but have them travel down the roadways faster."
