CITY BUS

City of Unalaska

Starting Monday, the City of Unalaska is offering a week of free bus service, as part of the Planning Department’s effort to study transportation issues around the island.

The 12-seater bus runs from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., with a route change at 6 p.m.

The daytime route runs from Overland Drive to the back of the Spit with almost 20 stops, including City Hall, Westward Seafoods, the grocery stores, and the airport.

Between PenAir’s struggles and a new city bus proposal, transportation dominated the discussion at Tuesday's City Council meeting.

The Planning Department is piloting a bus route as part of its $5,000 transportation study.

Planning Director Bill Homka said the goal is to figure out how the city can help Unalaskans and visitors get around more easily.
