ABERDEEN, Wash. – Big changes on the bus take effect next Monday, and this is the last weekend of service from Grays Harbor Transit. Effective September 2nd, the main line is eliminating weekends, holidays, transfers, and the route to Centralia, but keeping the College Sticker Program for students.

General Manager Mark Carlin told the Transit Authority last month that the cuts will correct an $800-thousand budget deficit “We just feel that eliminating weekends will affect the least amount of customers.”

The transit will ask the public for a .01% sales tax increase on the November countywide ballot. Carlin says if it passes it will return them to a state-approved budget. He hoped to see a return to weekend service by 2015.
