Monday through Saturday, routes will operate according to their Saturday schedule. Weekday departure times have been updated to reflect Saturday service levels. Regular Sunday service will resume May 10. All operating routes and services continue to provide fare-free trips. A face mask or covering is required to ride. Passengers should observe the prescribed social distance of six feet, board and alight at the rear door. These changes are in effect until further notice.
Fixed-route service is what most people are familiar with--buses traveling regular routes at scheduled times. Days of operation and service hours vary by route.
