Beginning Monday, June 17, Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA) will provide bus service directly to the terminal building at Bellingham International Airport. Route 3 will link the airport with both Bellingham Station in downtown Bellingham, and with Cordata Station near Whatcom Community College. The route will depart hourly from both stations between 6:40 a.m. and 6:40 p.m. on weekdays, and between 7:40 a.m. to 5:40 p.m. on Saturdays.
Other changes include re-routing on Routes 4 and 50. These are intended to make it easier for residents of both the Birchwood Neighborhood and Lummi Nation to reach the Fred Meyer Shopping Center.
Route 65, which connects Everson, Nooksack, Lynden, Birch Bay and Ferndale, is being discontinued. Route 65 was a two-year pilot project, funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Service changes take effect on June 16, 2019. (Because Route 3 does not run on Sundays, service to Bellingham International Airport begins on Monday, June 17.)
Many other routes and schedules are changing in some way. To learn more about the changes, call (360) 676-7433 or visit www.ridewta.com/changes.
