LOGAN — The Cache Valley Transit District is poised to unveil their most significant service in expansion in 12 years on Monday as the LOOP officially begins service. The LOOP connects major shopping centers on the North and South ends of Logan, the historic Logan downtown district, and Utah State University campus—all with no transfers and buses running every 15 minutes during peak hours.
Todd Beutler, CVTD CEO and General Manager says the expanded service is a response to the challenges of a growing population and increased traffic problems. The LOOP will offer more direct service with no transfers for over 60% of CVTD routes and major destinations.
Logan City Mayor Holly Daines adds that the LOOP will be the most convenient way to connect to work, campus, shopping, dining, entertainment, recreation, community services, activities, and events. She said it will be the easiest way to get around downtown Logan.
CVTD Board Chair, Holly Broome-Hyer stated, “January 6, 2020 will be an exciting day as the LOOP goes into service. This has been in the making for some time and will benefit the community for years to come.”
The public is invited to The LOOP ribbon cutting ceremony at the CVTD Transit Center located at 150 E 500 N, Logan, UT on Monday, January 6th at 10:00am. Complimentary LOOP-branded winter beanies will be given to the first 200 attendees and visitors will hear firsthand from District, City and County officials how the LOOP is specifically designed to meet the ever-expanding transportation needs of Cache Valley residents and visitors.
About CVTD: The Logan Transit District was formed in 1992, and in 2000 Cache County voters elected to establish the Cache Valley Transit District (CVTD) and ratified the creation of a special service district covering other parts of Cache Valley. The service has been zero-fare since inception and has continued to expand to meet the growing transportation needs of Cache Valley. In 2015 CVTD was awarded the Community Transportation Association of America’s 2015 Urban Transit System Of the Year.
