A new bus line is being proposed that would offer better service between Mishawaka and Elkhart.

The Yellow Line would run from the Downtown Elkhart Transfer Center to the Mishawaka Transfer Center every half-hour on weekdays.

Currently the bus runs every hour and transfers at Twin Branch Park. The new line would also make transfer times to other routes in the Transpo and Interurban Trolley systems less than 15 minutes.

Zack Dripps is with the Michiana Area Council of  Governments, which is overseeing the plan. He said the new route will make it easier for people to get around Michiana.

“What this does is improve overall system connectivity between the two systems.”

There are two public hearings scheduled. On June 12th at the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library downtown branch and on June 13th at the Elkhart Public Library downtown branch. Both run from 4 to 7 p.m.
