TRAVELING ACROSS CONGESTED BRIDGES?
WHAT IS STRETCH?
Your bridge commute CONQUERED.
STRETCH is a transit service that connects passengers in the Quad Cities on both sides of the Mississippi River. This service provides an alternative for commuters crossing the river and will help lower congestion on Quad Cities area river crossings during I-74 bridge construction, while ensuring a positive rider experience.
Take transit or park your vehicle at Burlington Coat Factory in Bettendorf, Iowa and board STRETCH to get to Centre Station in Moline, Illinois or District Station in Rock Island, Illinois. Buses will run Monday thru Friday from 5:45 a.m. to 6:35 p.m.
To view the STRETCH route in real time, download the TransLoc app on your mobile device, and select the Davenport Citibus system. Don't forget that MetroLINK and Bettendorf Transit systems are also in TransLoc!
