PEORIA - Getting to and from your weekend jobs in the River City just got a little easier.

CityLink officially started its Sunday service.

Busses lined-up at the Downtown Transit Center for the first early morning commutes.

Nine bus routes connected the city’s major thoroughfares like Main street and University Avenue.

Currently, the service only runs in Peoria and does not cross the river.

Citylink says the routes connect several of Peoria's vital commercial districts.

Anna Buehrer, CityLink’s Marketing Director told us they "looked at where the greatest need was, where the demand was, and tried to provide the best coverage for those areas."

Citylink is studying whether to open a second transit center on Peoria's north side.
