Coronavirus News #5 ● for GBT Riders & the Public ● April 10, 2020
Modified Bus Service
Effective Monday, April 13, 2020
For the protection of our drivers and riders during this coronavirus pandemic, GBT will be operating a modified service schedule beginning on Monday, April 13, 2020. Here’s an overview:
- Routes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, 15 will be running a Sunday schedule seven days a week
- Routes 8 and Coastal Link (CL) will be running a modified schedule Monday through Saturday, and a Sunday schedule on Sundays
- Route 19x will be running a modified schedule with one morning and one afternoon trip Monday through Friday
- Route 7 will be temporarily suspended – Riders should use the Coastal Link (CL)
- Routes 17, 22x, and 23 will be temporarily suspended
These changes will be in effect until further notice as GBT is continuing to monitor developments regarding the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Riders should note that the Bus Tracker and other electronic signage will be limited or unavailable during this time as it will be inaccurate and not reflect these changes.
The modified service does provide access to community services critical to all of us at this time including major hospitals for healthcare workers, pharmacies, and grocery stores.
Only 10 Riders on a Bus at a Time
Beginning Monday, April 13, 2020, drivers will limit the number of riders on any bus to 10 people. Once that number has been reached, the doors will close and riders at stops will need to wait for the next bus.
