ROCKFORD - The city's bus system has a new stop for riders.
Starting Tuesday, the Rockford Mass Transit District will have a fixed route to the newly opened SwedishAmerican Cancer Center on Bell School Road.
The new shuttle service will run directly from the East Side Transfer Center at 725 Lyford Road to the Cancer Center on an as needed, pre-scheduled ride basis.
There is no charge to ride the shuttle from the Lyford location, however, standard fares will still apply to the fixed route portion of the trip. To schedule a ride, call 815-961-2256. RMTD requests riders schedule their rides at least 24 hours in advance. However, rides can also be requested with as little as four hours notice.
The shuttle only runs Monday through Friday. It will not run at night or on weekends.
