ST. CLOUD -- Metro Bus has made some changes to the Route 34 bus service which served portions of Waite Park.

Metro Bus has merged Route 34 with Route 3 allowing for full bus service seven days a week.

The expanded Route 3 will now also provide full bus service to Bel Clare Estates and Quarry Park.

Route 34 was developed to provide limited weekday service between Crossroads Center, Stearns County Service Center West and Tri-CAP. Route 34 has now been absorbed into an expanded Route 3 and is included in regular Metro Bus operations.

The changes go into effect today.
