The New Deviated Fixed Routes are up and running!
New Routes FULL UPDATED SCHEDULE (1/17/19) HERE
Winter road conditions are slowing our buses down by approximately 10 minutes. Please expect delays and plan your trips accordingly. We apologize for this inconvenience, but will get you to your destinations safely!
Winter Driving Conditions are upon us. Remember our buses make frequent stops, allow enough braking distance! This weather also means that there will be more delays in travel as road conditions dictate the speed and path that we take. Plan for delays, especially on our Intercity Routes. Thank you for your patience while we get you to your destinations safely!
As always – www.tripcheck.com is an excellent resource!
