MTD Expanding Line 3 to Foothill Sansum Clinic


On Monday, the Metropolitan Transit District (MTD) expanded Line 3 to include a stop at the Sansum Clinic located on Foothill Road with weekday service every half hour between 7:45 a.m. and 5:15 p.m. Line 3 also serves downtown, Cottage Hospital, La Cumbre Plaza, and other Sansum facilities. The change is in response to passenger requests, and MTD and Sansum are coordinating on the effort.

“This will be a huge improvement in bus access to Foothill for our patients as there will be an additional 20 stops there per day,” Sansum Director of Operations Aniko Kim MPH said in a statement. The clinic sees 120,000 patient visits each year, according to the release.
