ConneX pilot extended with adjustment to weekend hours

ConneX, the new on-demand ride service pilot in Sartell, is extended through December 31, 2019. The service has been steadily gaining ridership since its introduction in January of this year. The extended trial will give Metro Bus more time to evaluate ridership trends.

“By extending the pilot, we will gather more information about the overall performance of the service,” says Metro Bus CEO Ryan Daniel. “We will see how ridership changes with summer weather, the U-Go Free Ride Program and adults and kids participating in summer activities.”

Hours of Service Update: Weekend service hours will change effective July 1. This is in response to ridership data, feedback from riders and input from Bus Operators. These changes are designed to better serve weekend travelers. The new hours are: Sat 10:30 am – 6:30 pm; and Sun 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

The hours through June 30 are Sat 9:30 am – 5:30 pm; and Sun 10:30 am – 5:30 pm. Mon-Fri remain the same: 6:30 am – 8:30 pm. Ride requests will be taken up to 15 minutes before the start of service until 15 minute before the end of service each day.
