PEORIA (WEEK) — Sunday was the first day of CityLink’s pilot program, which connects downtown Peoria to Wildlife Prairie Park in Hanna City.
The project is over a year in the making and aims to give better access to the outdoors to those without transportation.
Executive Director, Roberta English, said connecting communities is crucial for kids and adults alike.
“If people don’t have access, they won’t have that exposure. So, one of the things we can do as business people, as leaders in this community, is find a way for everyone to have access to the great things that happen in Peoria,” said English.
The trial program will last five weeks. Buses will run on Sundays from the downtown Peoria CityLink Transit Center to the park in Hanna City.
Bus passengers will get reduced admission rates to the park.
