LOOP Buses Offer Service on New Year's Eve

 Posted December 2, 2014

The Loop riverfront circulator will operate on Wednesday, December 31 to accommodate New Year's Eve festivities. The service will run its regular route beginning at 6:00 p.m. and will end with the last stop in Bettendorf at 3:30 a.m. All four Loop buses will be in operation, with two traveling in a clockwise direction (“Blue Loop”) and two running the route in a counter-clockwise direction (“Orange Loop”) each hour -- giving riders frequent service and increased capacity for the busy night.

The Loop riverfront circulator gives riders easy access to downtown attractions in Bettendorf, the Village of East Davenport, Davenport, The District in Rock Island, and Moline. It is a safe and enjoyable way to travel among popular venues and enjoy local festivities. The brightly colored orange retro-style buses – with stadium seating, huge windows, full glass ceilings, and friendly drivers – are easy to spot and comfortable to ride. Buses may be boarded either at a designated "Loop Stop" or by flagging the bus down in "The Loop Zone", which is anywhere along the route in the downtown areas. Please note that all downtown hotels are on The Loop route, making it extra easy to bring in the New Year safely.

Cost: $1 per trip or $3 for a day-pass, 50 cents for those over 60, the disabled and those with a Medicare card. For more information about The Loop riverfront circulator service – including route and stop locations -- visit .
