Wausau Metro Ride to be relocated temporarily



(PRESS RELEASE) - Street construction on both Washington and Jefferson Streets will cause the Metro Ride Transit Center to relocate beginning June 11, 2012. The temporary location is a municipal parking lot on River Drive, just south of the United Way and across the street from the City of Wausau/Marathon County Park Department.
Passengers will be able to transfer between routes at the temporary location. Routes will
continue to serve the downtown on the way to and on the way from the temporary site. Some
regular bus stops will be closed in the downtown, but others will be added for passenger
convenience. Amenities at the temporary site will include a waiting shelter, seating and
restroom facilities.
Metro Ride will return to its regular Transit Center facility at 555 Jefferson Street once
construction has been completed in about 8 weeks. Jefferson Lines and Lamers Bus Lines
will not stop in the downtown during construction.
For additional information please contact Metro Ride at 715-842-9287 or
metroride@ci.wausau.wi.us. Printable transit center relocation brochures are available on
the Metro Ride webpage at http://metroride@ci.wausau.wi.us.
