Changes in store for CCPT routes beginning March 1

The South City route will eliminate stops at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, Sanborn Avenue, Park Avenue and Plattsburgh Middle School. The route's second-half runs to Lakeview and Barnard Apartments, and the Clinton Community College housing on the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base, will also be eliminated. Stops added include McSweeney's Red Hots location on State Route 9S, Family Dollar in the Skyway Shopping Center Plaza, and U.S. Oval.

The Transit Shuttle will be created to make stops at the Grand Isle ferry, Champlain Centre mall, Greyhound Bus Lines stop on Booth Drive, Plattsburgh International Airport and the Amtrak station on Dock Street. The shuttle will also handle stops handled previously by other routes such as CVPH Medical Center and the Clinton County Government Center,

The CCC/Shopper's Shuttle will be created to also make stops at the mall, Champlain Centre South, Wal-Mart, Plattsburgh Plaza and SUNY Plattsburgh's Angell College Center. That route will also handle stops at the mall and the government center, as well as Clinton Community College and its housing formerly handled by the South City route.

The North City, South City, West City, and new CCC/Shopper's Shuttle routes will also run every hour, on the hour, weekdays beginning at their designated start times.

"That way, it's easier for people to know when it's coming," said Barie.

Other changes include shifting back stop times and adding additional runs for certain routes to accommodate requests from passengers getting to and from work, said Barie.

"That includes shifting our Churubusco route five minutes earlier to accommodate teachers who use it to go to work at [Northern Adirondack Central]," she said. "We've also shifted our Peru route so commuters from Peru can come into the city by 8 o'clock."

The Wallace Hill route has also been altered to accommodate stops on Banker Road at NovaBus, UPS and the Plattsburgh Town Offices. The Saturday Shuttle will also now make stops to locations including North Bowl Lanes and Cumberland 12 Cinemas, adding more for passengers looking for access to weekend entertainment
