Hernando commission accepting comments on THE Bus changes starting Jan. 3

COUNTYWIDE

Here's a chance to speak about Bus changes

Beginning Jan. 3, for a period of 30 days, the Hernando County Commission will accept public comment regarding proposed changes to THE Bus, the county's fixed-route transit system. Proposed changes will increase the frequency of bus travel along the routes. Routes will also be extended to the Pasco-Hernando Community College Spring Hill campus and provide for uninterrupted service between Brooksville and Spring Hill. To do this will require the addition of another bus to the Purple route. Minor adjustments to the Spring Hill Red and Blue routes are also planned. Send comments to Dennis Dix at dennisd@hernandocounty.us or Steve Diez at stevend@hernandocounty.us. Comments may also be mailed to Hernando County Planning Department, 20 N Main St., Room 262, Brooksville, FL 34601. Call (352) 754-4057.
