Transportation has been an issue of great weight for Madison County. As the demand increases, Madison County Transit is implementing “Phase 2” of its plan to improve regional mobility.  Phase 1 was implemented back in January. The new phase is going to allow for later weekday service in Alton, new Saturday service in Bethalto, new Sunday service in Granite City, as well as fixed and expanded routes. Director of Marketing and Management SJ Morrison tells The Big Z why these “phases” are being put into action.

The expanded routes are between Glen Carbon and Highland and expanded trips to Gateway Commerce Center as well as a new fixed route in Highland.
