Bus routes expanded in Beloit, Whitewater, Janesville and Milton
JANESVILLE--Starting this week, Beloit residents can ride buses to Whitewater and back in the same day for the first time since 1982.
UW-Whitewater students living in Janesville can ride to campus at a reasonable morning hour.
Milton residents can board a bus at Freedom Plastics or The Gathering Place and ride to Janesville.
The expanded Janesville bus service that started Monday is another improvement in the area’s regional transportation system, said Dave Mumma, Janesville Transit System director.
A $243,525 rural state transportation grant is helping pay for the Janesville Transit System’s expanded service to Beloit, Janesville, Milton and Whitewater.
The grant is intended to improve bus service in rural areas and small towns, Mumma said.
