(March 20, 2020) — Boarding & Fare Collection

Effective immediately, passengers will now board from the rear door with the exception of passengers who are in wheelchairs and others who require the bus to kneel. Rear door boarding will help maintain recommended social distancing by providing space of six feet or greater between customers and bus drivers. As a result, we will not collect cash fares and ask that all pass purchase be done online at There will be no changes to Dial-A-Ride fares or boarding.

Keep Others Safe

Bus drivers and fellow riders rely on members of the public to follow public health direction to not travel when sick. Our drivers, and your fellow riders are relying on you to wash your hands frequently, cough or sneeze into your elbow and DO NOT TRAVEL IF YOU FEEL SICK.
