Regarding the CDTA bus change. Please don't change our 531 St. Lukes Bus schedule! We need this bus and if you change the times you will mess up everyone's schedule. Please don't do this!

Also regarding the bus, CDTA is also changing Route #472 to now service Pyramid Pines Apartments on Old Gick Rd. The #472 bus will no longer service Wilton Mall, only the #50 bus will go to Wilton Mall now.
Please tell CDTA not to cut Wilton Mall out of Route #472, this bus has been very convenient for mall shoppers who only wish to spend half an hour at the mall and return to Saratoga.
