CityLink to re-evaluate proposed transfer facility location

PEORIA, Ill. - The Greater Peoria Mass Transit District (CityLink) is going to re-evaluate the proposed location at 4310 North Brandywine Drive for the North Side Transfer Zone facility site.

CityLink, along with TranSystems, held a public meeting on December 5 at First Federated Church's Life Together Center to provide information on the proposed site. Residents of that area, that attended the meeting, expressed concerns over the facility being located near a residential neighborhood, which prompted CityLink to re-evaluate the location.

"This site was initially selected due largely in part to location, availability and access to designated CityLink routes. We have been in the process of researching and selecting a potential site for a transfer facility in the north side of Peoria since 2013," says CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs. "The results of the environmental study conducted revealed that the location at 4310 North Brandywine Drive met the criteria required to successfully accommodate up to an eight-bay transfer facility." 

CityLink plans to continue searching for new potential locations, and to revisit locations that were dismissed earlier in the North Side Transfer Zone study process.
