Evenings and Saturday Service
Valley Transit is providing a new type of transportation service for the general public in Walla Walla and College Place on weekday evenings and Saturday. on weekdays FLEX routes run between 5:45 pm and 8:40 pm. On Saturday FLEX routes run between 10:45 am and 6:10 pm.
Two FLEX routes, the West Loop and the East Loop, depart every 45-minutes from the Transit Center and provide convenient service to most of the cities’ popular destinations. This is a route deviation type of service for the general public, which means the schedule for the West Loop and the East Loop provides enough time for the bus to vary from the regular route to pick up people who live within one-quarter mile (about 3 blocks).
A reservation is recommended if you want the bus to deviate from its route, as reservations will be accommodated ahead of requests from walk-on passengers. For maps and time schedules for this service See Rider Info.
Another service, the Connector is an extension of transit service to areas of Walla Walla and College Place which do not have a nearby bus route. It is available during evening and Saturday service hours to transport those who live more than one-quarter mile from the West Loop or the East Loop routes. Trips are provided from stops in the Connector zones to the West or East loop, or within the Connector zones. This provides a service area similar to the seven fixed routes during weekday service hours, but with a reduced number of vehicles that is more appropriate for times with less demand. On weekdays the Connector runs between 5:45 pm and 8:40 pm. On Saturday the Connector runs between 10:45 am and 6:10 pm.
