The Loop Won’t be Back in the Quad Cities
This QC service won't be making a comeback.
Since 2010, those of you wanting to party and get from bar-to-bar in the downtown areas of the Quad Cities, had a friend. It was big orange bus called The Loop.
The Loop was very convenient and made it's rounds all around Davenport, Rock Island, Bettendorf, Village of East Davenport and Moline.
According to WQAD.com,
"Through cost-saving measures, local operators were able to keep the service rolling for an additional two seasons,” said a statement from the Bi-State Regional Commission. After all the grant money was spent, organizers decided that “continuing the service without the supplemental funding is not a viable option.”
The Loop will not be returning in 2016.
