A local public transportation company will be holding a public hearing to discuss proposed changes for its final list of bus stops.

Greenway Public Transportation will hold the meeting Thursday at 10 a.m. before the Western Piedmont Regional Transit Authority Board of Directors at 1515 4th St. SW in Conover, according to a notice from the transportation company.

The final stops, which would go into effect Feb. 3, would remove the Rural King stop at Magnolia Plaza and add Western Piedmont Community College as the transfer point between routes 21 and 22 and routes 23 and 24, the notice said.

It would also remove stops on Valdese Avenue for route 22, but the stops still would be serviced by routes 23 and 24.

It would add stops to Walmart Neighborhood Market, Food Lion, U.S. Post Office and Goodwill, all on North Green Street for routes 21 and 22, the notice said. It also would add a stop to The Outreach Center on East Fleming Drive for route 22, according to a map of the stops.

Other stops along route 21 would include Marquee Cinemas, O’Reilly’s Auto Parts at West Fleming Drive, the Fairfield Inn and Suites coming to North Green Street and BB&T on Avery Avenue.

Route 22 also would get a stop at Advance Auto Parts on West Fleming Drive and a stop at East Union Street and Henry Glen’s Drive, according to a poster from Greenway Public Transportation.
