LANTA tweaks bus schedules
If you ride a LANTA bus, you'll want to make sure you have the most current schedule, as routes are changing again.
In late August of last year, officials completely restructured the LANTA bus system.
The new routes were mainly constructed through new combinations of existing routes.
Most routes will operate between 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. with six routes continuing into the late evening.
All LANTA bus routes continue to run either hourly or every half hour.
Since overhauling the routes in August, LANTA officials have monitored and evaluated them. Using input from drivers and riders, there are a number of small fixes that will further improve the new routes, officials said.
These changes go into effect Jan. 30.
Changes are available on the LANTA website or by calling customer service at 610-776-RIDE (7433).
The changes that will be implemented are as follows:
101 All trip times have been adjusted. See new timetable.
101 Three westbound trips leaving Easton will serve Bartholomew House Mon-Sun.
102 All trip times have been adjusted. See new timetable.
102 Eastbound trips to Cedar View apartments have changed.
103 All southbound evening trips will have a slight routing change.
104 Late evening trip times have changed. See new timetable.
104 Peak period trips Monday –Friday will operate express between ATC and LV Mall.
104 Will no longer serve Regent Way and Bevin Dr. That segment will be served by 210.
209 Eastbound routing in downtown Allentown has changed.
210 Minor routing and trip time changes to trips serving Dalton St.
213 Trip time changes have been implemented. See new timetable.
213 Trips not servicing Snowdrift Rd. and Windsor Dr. will become Route 613.
There will be a combined timetable, 213/613.

219 All trip times leaving LV Mall have been adjusted. See new timetable.
