That means downtown commuters working late shifts can use transit to get home, and folks enjoying downtown’s bustling nightlife and dining scenes will have this free transit option until 10 p.m. In addition to the new hours, the grant offsets the loss of redevelopment funds for the shuttle’s existing Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. service.
