Route 14 will run from north to south and complete the opposite loop of Route 4 with a stop at Lone Tree Road at CCC
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - A new Mountain Line route along with a new service schedule will provide Coconino Community College students, staff and visitors greater access to and from the College.
Starting Aug. 18, there will be stops on both sides of Lone Tree Road at CCC, which means riders can now travel in either direction, according to information from NAIPTA (Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority).
The new Route 14 will complete the opposite loop of Route 4, traveling from the Downtown Connection Center, south on Lone Tree Road, through the Bow and Arrow neighborhood, across Lake Mary, north on Beulah and north on Milton Road. Route 14 will run Monday-Friday every 30 minutes.
Route 4 will also operate on a new schedule, running every 30 minutes, seven days a week. Stop 4 (Coco's) will move around the corner, onto Milton Road, just north of the Forest Meadows intersection. Stop 14 at Lone Tree Road and Woodland Dr. will permanently close and riders are advised to use Stop 15 at Lone Tree Road and Brannen Circle, which is being relocated a little to the south to close the gap with Stop 14.
Also, CCC students can get a discount on a Mountain Line bus pass for the semester. Any student attending a university, college, technical school, or any other post-high school educational program, is able to purchase the Mountain Line college/university pass. The semester pass, which is valid from the first through the last day of school, costs $99, with the fall pass valid from Aug. 15 - Dec. 15 and the spring pass valid from Jan. 5 - May 15.
An annual pass, valid for the entire calendar year from the date of purchase, is available for $239. Northern Arizona University students ride the Mountain Link system, which connects the campus with downtown Flagstaff and Woodlands Village, free of charge, but this pass will give them access to the rest of the Mountain Line system.
Student passes are available for purchase online at the NAIPTA website (passes ordered online will be mailed out), or at the NAIPTA office at 3773 N. Kaspar Dr. between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. In order to purchase the pass, all students must show proof of enrollment and bring a student ID, if applicable.
