Service Advisories:

All routes running 2014 - 15 Municipal Break Routes!

Thanks Giving is Here!

Starting on Saturday November 22nd, we will be running on the "Municipal Break Schedule".  Routes 12, 15, 17, 19, 24 and 26 only.

On Thursday November 27th, Thanksgiving Day, there will be no service.  Our drivers love turkey dinners and family time too!

Break Route schedule resumes on Friday morning, November 28th... no matter how black it is.

On Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 30th, we will resume the Session Route Schedules.  In addition, at BOTH Amtrak trains returning from Chicago, there will be a huge lineup of buses waiting to welcome you back.

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.

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