Yesterday there was a lot of discussion on Twitter about a significant service change planned for the south end of the #70 Grand MetroBus route. Today, leaders from Metro and from the DESCO group, owners of Loughborough Commons, agree that they want to continue bus access at that location.
Over the last few months, Metro has been working with Loughborough Commons, and listening to suggestions from Metro customers to find workable alternatives to the current bus stop location that is on the shopping center parking lot. If we are unable to find a solution, Metro will lose its lease with DESCO and will discontinue service to the shopping area effective Monday, June 13, 2011. However, DESCO and Metro are optimistic that a solution can be found that will serve area employees and customers.
