PEORIA - A water leak inside Peoria's main bus hub is causing an inconvenience for some travelers.
The ticket office at the CityLink Transit Center is closed after an overnight sprinkler system problem.
Officials discovered a leak Thursday that left the ticket office walls, floor and carpet in need of repair. So it will remain closed until Tuesday.
Many travelers use the ticket office to buy monthly bus or punch passes and to pay their utility bills. However, those services will not be available until the office reopens.
"There are some other businesses in town when people can pay their utility bills as well as the Ameren office and the water office downtown as well. So it certainly is an inconvenience for people who ride the buses. They can't just pay their utility bill, but there are other options," said Anna Buehrer, CityLink representative.
Bus passes can be purchased at the CityLink administration building during normal business hours. Single fares can be paid to bus drivers.
The Transit Center is still open to passengers. Only the ticket office is closed.
