About the Changes
Following a public hearing, the Coralville City Council approved the changes to fares and passes at the City Council meeting on May 25, 2021. These changes are a result of the Iowa City Area Transit Study that began in August 2019. The transit study reviewed bus routes, stops, schedules, fares, and transfer policies, and looked at ways to better coordinate area transit systems. Based on the study, Coralville Transit also implemented new routes and schedules in October of 2020.
