Feb. 26, 1960 - Night and Sunday bus service order issued: Restoration of evening and Sunday bus service by the Wisconsin Public Service Corp. was ordered Thursday afternoon by the State Public Service Commission (PSC).

Bus service evenings, Sundays and holidays was discontinued by Public Service on Aug. 9, 1959, because of what the utility said was an effort to reduce losses on operation of the buses.

Public Service operates seven bus lines in Green Bay, some of which extend to Preble and Allouez. Two additional bus lines serve De Pere, one line operating on the east of the Fox River and the other on the west.

Approximately 700 people petitioned for restoration of service, the commission said. The petitions were started by Mrs. Peter Pharris, 400 S. Monroe Ave.

Bus service now ends at 6:30 p.m., except on Friday nights, when stores are open. Service ends at 9:30 on Friday nights.
