Link Celebrates 25 Years


Nearly 25 years ago, the first Link Transit buses rolled out and began operating what was the first public transit service in Wenatchee in over 25 years, and the first ever public transit system in our region. Over these past 25 years, Link has grown to be an invaluable community asset, and an integral part of the infrastructure of our communities, providing access to work, school, medical, shopping and recreation for people throughout our area. To date, more than twenty five million people have ridden a Link Transit bus. Those who ride transit are your friends, neighbors, co-workers, customers and employees. Without the support of our communities and all our residents, Link would not be able to provide the quality service that you have come to expect.

On December 16, Link celebrates 25 years of service. To commemorate this occasion, we are going to have some fun. The week of December 12-16, we are having a text-to-win contest. You can find out how you can enter this by riding one of our buses beginning December 12, or by visiting Columbia Station. On Friday, December 16, we will draw names from all entries and give away 13 gift cards ranging in value from $25 to $225.
