Visitors to the Bagnell Dam Strip will soon be able to take the bus. A new shuttle bus service has been finalized and will begin operations by mid-June or sooner. Alderman Gerry Murawski says it’s been a lot of work by a lot of people to get the project up and running.
The shuttle service will operate seven days a week – five hours a day Sunday through Thursday, and from noon until 2:00 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The cost to ride will be $1 per trip or you can purchase a day-pass for $5. The bus service is expected to help alleviate parking problems along the strip, freeing up as many as 100 additional parking spots.
