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.
