Service Advisories:

All routes running 2014-15 Session Routes!

As in: 
Carousel Routes
Nights and Weekend Routes
Municipal Session Routes.

Easter is coming! 

On Friday April 3rd and Saturday April 4th there will be reduced service on routes 7 & 8.

Also, there will be extra service to the train station via Route 10 (Amtrak Route) on Friday April 3rd.  This will be in the form of extra buses on the established run times. 

Extra Amtrak 10 buses will be waiting to meet the evening Amtrak arrival on Sunday April 5th, while our normal service will be expanded for the Monday arrivals.


Map Errata: 

On the Municipal Session Map, Route 16 (2) Gold Northwest DOES go to the City Center, it diverts from 2 Gold route at Pierce street. See Route 16 on the web pages for corrected Map.

The Strange "No Service" notated on the map calenders for April 18th is in fact an error... Normal service will be provided on that day.  All rumors to the contrary are to be considered false and we wish to assert forthright that the world will not be ending on that day... at least as far as we know.

---> And Yes, Route 16 Gold is (for all practical purposes) a Gold 2 bus.
