Citylink Transfer Point Moving

The Citylink northern bus transfer point in Coeur d’Alene is moving tomorrow. The old transfer point behind the cinema parking garage at Riverstone has become progressively more congested over the last couple of years, and is no longer suitable for efficient transit use.

So, beginning at 5:40 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday), Citylink buses will stage at a larger site further down Riverstone Drive located on the south-west corner of Riverstone Drive, close to where it joins Seltice Way. This location is a two acre site which is well lit, and has space to park 35 vehicles comfortably.

Starting tomorrow, all passengers bound for Post Falls, Hayden, State Line, Fernan, Coeur d’Alene and Worley, will need to catch their bus at Seltice and Riverstone. The published departure times for these buses will remain the same. The rural bus service to DeSmet is unaffected by this change.
