MOSES LAKE — The Grant Transit Authority (GTA) has modified its bus schedules.
In this round of changes, the Ellensburg route is being cut entirely, as is the late-night Warden run. Both cuts are due to a lack of riders. In exchange, later hours are being added to other routes and some Saturday service is being added back. New GTA schedule books are available at the GTA Multimodal Transit Center in Moses Lake or on their website at granttransit.com.
Weekday service changes include:
Route 10: Instead of ending at 7 p.m., the route will make one more loop and end at 8 p.m.
Route 12: The route will make two additional rounds at the end of the day and will now end at 7:50 p.m.
