GTA changing up bus routes

Print Article

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

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.

Route 13: Instead of ending at 6 p.m., two more rounds have been added and route 13 will now end at 8 p.m.

Route 14: Two more rounds have been added, bringing this route’s ending from 5:20 p.m. to 7:20 p.m.

Route 20: One more round trip between Big Bend Community College (BBCC) and Ephrata Transportation Center (ETC) has been added in the evening. An additional run from Ephrata to BBCC has been added at 9 p.m.

Route 21: Three more rounds have been added to Route 13. It will end at 8:25 p.m. instead of 5:25 p.m.

Route 22: The run at 6 p.m. that ran between ETC and Soap Lake has been changed to 6:30 p.m. Two additional rounds have been added, making this route end at 9 p.m. at ETC.

Route 30: The run leaving Cascade Valley at 9:40 p.m. and arriving in Warden at 11 p.m. has been canceled. The rest of the routes remain the same.

Route 40: One evening run as been added, with the bus leaving ETC at 7:30. The rest of the routes, with the exception of the 5:15 a.m. run, have been moved up 10 to 15 minutes.

Route 50: The trips to Wenatchee have remained the same. The return trips will leave five minutes early.

Route 60: The run to Ellensburg has been canceled entirely.

Weekend service changes include:

Routes 10, 12, 13, 14, 20, 21 and 22: These routes will have limited service throughout the day on Saturday only. No service will be available on Sunday.

Route 30: The morning and afternoon routes remain the same. The 9:40 p.m. route has been discontinued.
