West Chester, PA– TMACC riders reliant on the Coatesville Link and Southern Chester County SCCOOT now have access to more midday service on the Link, as well as additional stops along the SCCOOT. The new schedule times went into effect on April 28.
Earlier this fall, TMACC had to cut services on the Coatesville Link and Southern Chester County SCCOOT due to the lack of transportation funds. Thanks to the legislation of key state officials on the passage of the Transportation Bill, funding became available to restore service.
“Last year, the lines reported combined usage of just under 100,000 riders,” states P. Timothy Phelps, Executive Director of the Transportation Management Association of Chester County. “Last fall we were forced to contract our bus services on both lines due to state funding perils, we are happy to announce the restoration of many of those cuts, as well as the addition of several important stops on both lines.”
The Coatesville Link and the Southern Chester County SCCOOT, are services of the Transportation Management Association of Chester County, (TMACC). The Link operates between Parkesburg and the Brandywine YMCA, while the SCCOOT runs from Oxford to Kennett Square with trips to West Chester. Both offer a low cost, ecological method of transportation to and from employment, medical appointments, entertainment, and commercial businesses.
Updated schedules are available to riders on each bus and will be widely distributed throughout the service area. They can also be accessed online at www.tmacc.org
