GBT Bus Hub in the Snow

This is the time of year when we review our emergency procedures and plans to be sure we are able to keep our services running during severe weather and, if there is an interruption, to resume service as soon as possible following a storm. Part of our preparations include letting our riders and communities know where to go for information about service changes or cancellations during storms of any kind. 

 

Whether you are a city bus rider, GBT Access rider or a business whose employees depend on GBT, this newsletter provides you with a variety of ways to stay in touch and tips for planning your trips during weather events.

 

Plan ahead, stay safe and keep in touch.
