Is Route 724 still an option?
Route 724 continues to operate both northbound and southbound on Hampshire Avenue. New bus stops are posted on Hampshire south of Hwy. 610 to serve employees at Liberty Carton.

Route 724 no longer serves the Building D stop at Target North Campus. Customers should instead board at the Building B stop. Schedule times remain the same, however the printed schedule showing this route change won’t be updated until June 2014.
