Whether passengers are looking for a ride to the mall, the Coral Springs Gymnasium or a local supermarket, residents have the convenience of riding the Community Bus for a minimal fee of .50 cents.
The buses, which are air-conditioned and wheelchair-accessible, have been operating for the past seven years from 8 a.m. to 5:55 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4:55 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4:55 p.m.
The buses are white with blue or green striping to indicate the route color. The Green route serves the north end of the City, including stops at Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Magnolia Shoppes and has a higher ridership, with about 250 riders a day.
The Blue route circles the south end and includes stops at the City Gymnasium, Coral Square Mall and Coral Springs Medical Center. Both routes make stops on the hour at the northeast corner of the Sample Road and University Drive intersection, allowing riders to change buses. It takes approximately an hour to make one loop, but please keep in mind that traffic conditions may cause the bus to arrive slightly early or late. There is no service on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
This service could be used in conjunction with connections to Broward County Transit Routes 2, 34, 62, 83 and 88. Riders making the connection with BCT will need to pay the appropriate fares.
A detailed schedule and route map is available at City Hall, the Coral Springs Gymnasium, City Hall in the Mall and on the City’s web site at www.CoralSprings.org/buses.
