|'Lunch express' starts in downtown Monroe|
The city of Monroe's downtown trolley now has a new route which city leaders expect will better serve the business community
The "Lunch Express" route began late last week.
Valerie McElhose, general manager of Monroe Transit, said the new route will include more pick-up and drop-off locations to better serve the business community.
The Lunch Express will pick up riders at various bus stops in downtown Monroe and drop riders off at a number of local restaurants.
"This more efficient route was planned around the idea that we need to get these riders back to their office on time," McElhose said. "This benefits Lunch Express riders as well as their employers."
The Lunch Express ride is free, she said.
The Lunch Express features free trolley service from 11:15 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday. It features 20 pickup and drop off locations around downtown Monroe.
Some of the restaurants the Lunch Express will travel by include Riverside Coney Island, Ernesto's, the Warehouse, Lu'San, Coda, Lea's of Lecompte, the Kitchen and 141 Diner.
The city of Monroe, through First Transit, bought the replica trolley in 2007. The $294,000 trolley was funded through a federal grant.
