Transit Service Changes

Starting Sept. 5, 2022

We implement service changes every January, April, June, and September to ensure service is provided where it’s needed most based on seasonal patterns and recent trends.

Fall Service Changes will start Sept. 5, 2022. Highlights of the changes include:

  • Increasing and adjusting bus service across the region to ensure service is provided where it is needed most.

  • Rolling back seasonal service to popular summer destinations.

We’ll continue monitoring ridership to ensure service is provided where it is needed most as more and more people choose transit.
