CityLink Initiates Program to Bring Bus Benches Into Compliance
Tuesday, October 13, 2015
CityLink has initiated a program to remove bus stop benches that are not in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and City of Peoria regulations.

To comply with accessibility the bus benches have to be placed on a five foot by eight foot concrete pad and provide a paved accessible route to the sidewalks.
