To: Our Valued LANta Riders and Community Partners:
On August 29, 2011 LANta will be implementing a major restructure of all of its fixed route bus services, the first such restructuring in 25 years. This restructure is being done as part of the long term improvement vision established in LANta’s strategic plan, Moving LANTA Forward.
The restructure represents the culmination of three years of planning and will provide both short term and long terms benefits to LANta riders. The primary goals of the restructure are:
1. Enhancing the overall level of transit service in the Lehigh Valley;
2. Creating a more user-friendly route network; and
3. Creating a route structure that can be built upon in the coming years.
We understands that there may be some confusion among riders in the first days of the implementation, however I am certain that in the end, you will find this to be the right step for LANta and you, our riders. The information you will need to make your trip starting August 29 is all available at www.lantabus.com or by calling 610-776-7433. As always, LANta staff is ready to assist our riders and community partners in this transition period.
This is an exciting time for public transportation in the Lehigh Valley. This restructure represents only the first step in LANta’s plan for continuous improvement to our region’s transit network over the next decade. Thank you for choosing LANta.
Peter G. Schweyer, LANta Board Chairman
