Citibus reconsiders plan to cancel routes

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

After holding two public hearings this week, sources with Citibus tell us the company has changed its mind about cutting two routes in Central Lubbock.

The first route under consideration was from 34th and Boston to South Plains mall, via 34th Street and Slide.

Route 19 was also on the chopping block.

It runs from 24th and Quaker to the South Plains Mall via 19th street and Frankford and Chicago Avenues.

Citibus originally said there just aren't enough people to support these routes, but, riders and several businesses in the area attended the meetings this week, and told company leaders they depend on them.

We're told Citibus plans to make a recommendation to the city council to keep these routes.

Council members must decide if there is enough money in the budget to keep them.
