Fixed-route bus service is CityLink's core service. In this service, ADA compliant transit buses are operated over an established route structure on a fixed schedule. There are 19 routes (12 weekday and 7 Saturday routes) on the CityLink route system. These routes are arranged on a ‘pulse’ system, meaning all but one route (Route 30 – Crosstown Ambler) departs and arrives from the Downtown Transfer Station at 1189 S. 2nd Street. To facilitate route transfers, all routes depart the station at 15 minutes after the hour, 45 minutes after the hour, or at the top of the hour.
Demand-Response Evening Service
The Evening Service is an advance reservation, shared-ride, demand-response service open to the public.

This service is provided from 6:15 p.m. until midnight (with 11:45 p.m. as the last available pick-up) Monday through Saturday, except designated holidays.
Pre-registration is required before scheduling the first trip. Trips must be scheduled at least a day in advance. Work-related trips receive first priority. Subscription booking is allowed for passengers traveling to and from work or work training.
