Three new buses and a survey are hoped to help usher in a new era for the Clermont Transportation Connection, which serves residents around the county with busing service.
The new buses, two of which are currently in operation, have served as a technological update for the transportation service that hopes to continue expanding in order to fill the needs of residents county wide.
“The new buses have some different interior features,” said CTC Director Ben Capelle. “They have 18 seats, which have a nicer fabric on them. On the front they have an electric sign much like a Metro bus does that lets them know the destination. They can see where the bus will be going.”
One bus each is currently dedicated to CTC’s only existing regular route services. Both started recently, the CTC offers regular routes from Felicity to the Amelia and Eastgate areas, as well as daily runs from New Richmond to Cincinnati. The third bus is expected to help expand the popular and quite often full New Richmond line.
