Traveling between the Quad Cities and Iowa City will be easier starting next week. Currently River Bend Transit offers bus service from Davenport to Iowa City on Mondays, but beginning August 18, it will add Tuesdays through Fridays.
Executive director Randy Zobrist says the expanded service is made possible by a federal Clean Air grant.
Research shows there's a great demand for this service on more than just one day per week.
Stops in Iowa City will include University of Iowa Hospitals and medical clinics, the VA hospital, the university and downtown.
On Tuesdays, River Bend buses will depart from Northpark Mall at 8 am, and return at 4 pm. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday departures are set for 6:30 am, with the return to Davenport at 4 pm. Reservations are "strongly recommended."
