Electric bus service to start in 4 weeks
Monday, January 6 is to be a red-letter day for Seneca and for riders of free bus passenger service. At last night’s city council meeting, Ed Halbig announced January 6 as the day that Seneca’s four electric-powered buses will begin picking up and transporting passengers to their destinations. The buses have already arrived. They have started trial runs. And the drivers of “CAT” gas diesel buses have begun special training to make the switch. City Administrator Greg Dietterick announced that, along with the start of electric bus service, Seneca will move its Park and Ride bus stop from the Main Street side of Norton Thompson Park to the Railroad Street side where a covered shelter will be built adjoining the electric-recharging station there.
