Additionally, Route 7 will now have afternoon runs departing at 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. from the Downtown Transit Center.

The Valley Express on Route 8 will now depart from the Downtown Transit Center five minutes earlier and travel along Mendenhall Loop and Riverside Drive. Riders can also flag down the bus on Riverside Drive where it is safe to do so.
