TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - On April 1, Tyler’s bus route 12 will undergo a change.

The route will use the second entrance into The Village at Cumberland Park and go north every half hour.

Assistant transit manager Jake Hooter says that this new route will better help veterans arrive at Department of Veterans Affairs clinic.

“Our previous route, our bus stop was on other side of the road from where the Veterans Affairs office is. So we feel this is going to be more convenient and safer for our passengers that are utilizing the veterans office,” said Hooter.

Tyler Transit will also move signage and bus stops across Centennial Parkway to the north side before April 1.

According to the City of Tyler, this change is a test route which the city will continue to evaluate and receive feedback on from the community.

Veterans who use their Rose Card can also receive half-off of their bus fare.

Anyone interested in receiving a Rose Card should speak with Carolyn Verver at the Tyler Chamber of Commerce, located at 315 N. Broadway Ave., suite 100.
