Back to School means route changes on the County Connection

Bus schedules aren’t set in stone. They can change to accomodate traffic, passenger requests, and even the return of school in the fall.
That’s exactly what happened yesterday on the County Connection. The new schedule went into effect yesterday. Read the summary of changes here, or check out the whole list at the County Connection’s website.
There’s bad news for the 600 route, but great news for Walnut Creek. How is your commute affected?
