📣 Due to COVID-19 national emergency, many transit agencies have reduced or suspended service in response to drop in ridership and various local stay-at-home orders. Some agencies waive fares and allow rear door boarding to accommodate social distancing. Route information on this site may not reflect these sudden and temporary service changes. Check Twitter feeds for transit agencies for current service updates prior to travel. 😷 Face covering or mask is advised (and may be required at some agencies) onboard transit vehicles.
