Sedona AZ (October 11, 2019) – The Sedona City Council, in conjunction with the Cottonwood City Council is pleased to announce expanded Lynx transit hours Monday through Friday, with additional service on Sunday. The new hours are in effect immediately.
Lynx will run every 45 minutes beginning at 6 a.m. From 7:30 p.m., the bus will run every 90 minutes, with the last bus leaving the Sedona Municipal lot at the corner of Schnebly Road and Peach Lane in Uptown, headed for Cottonwood, at 10:30 p.m. And there are new times on Sundays: from Cottonwood to Sedona buses will run approximately every 90 minutes between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
The cost for each trip within Sedona is only $1.
To support riders coming back to Cottonwood after the normal CAT bus hours end for the day, a new service called CAT Connect will take riders from the Cottonwood Library to their homes. Eventually, new routes are expected to be established covering Clarkdale to Verde Village.
Part of the goal of the extended service is to support more opportunities for Sedona’s workforce to find and take jobs knowing they can get to work and get back home again. Increased service can also encourage visitors to leave their cars at their hotels.
Cottonwood Area Transit provides paratransit service as well, and four fixed routes serving Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Verde Village, as well as the Verde Lynx commuter service to Sedona. CAT also connects with Yavapai-Apache Nation Transit to provide connections to Camp Verde and Greyhound. For more information about Verde Valley public transportation call the CAT office at 938-634-2287.
