The Loop riverfront circulator will begin service 2 hours early on Saturday, March 16 to accommodate St. Patrick's Day festivities. The service will run its regular route beginning at 3PM and will end with the last stop in Bettendorf at 1:45AM. Four buses will be in operation that evening -- two traveling in a clockwise direction and two running the route in a counter-clockwise direction each hour -- giving riders more frequent service and increased capacity for the busy night. The extended service schedule is available at www.qctransit.com.
The Loop riverfront circulator gives riders easy access to downtown attractions in Bettendorf, the Village of East Davenport, Davenport, The District in Rock Island, and Moline. It is a safe and enjoyable way to travel among popular venues and enjoy local festivities. The brightly colored orange retro-style buses are easy to spot and comfortable to ride. Since buses may be boarded either at a designated "Loop Stop" or by flagging the bus down in "The Loop Zone" (anywhere along the route in the downtown areas), The Loop is a safe and convenient means of travel to Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day downtown events.
Cost: $1 per trip or $3 for a day-pass, 50 cents for those over 60, the disabled, and Medicare cardholders. Additional information about The Loop, including printable St. Patrick's Saturday schedule and 2012-2013 Loop Rider's Guide, may be found at www.qctransit.com.###
