Phase 2 RFTA Service Reductions, Effective Monday, March 23 in response to COVID-19
RFTA’s Pandemic Task Force is continuing to work nonstop to support our region during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. RFTA plans to continue operating at a reduced level of service for those in need of its essential service.
Due to reductions in ridership, staffing constraints system wide, as well as the need for maintenance staff to proactively disinfect buses throughout each day, RFTA is taking steps to reduce service on all routes beginning Monday, March 23. These reductions are in addition to those instituted on March 16 and are intended to help protect RFTA’s passengers and frontline employees, while maintaining vital transit services for those who rely on them.
RFTA is enacting its Phase 2 service reductions, Effective Monday, March 23, which will affect all routes and services. Service reductions include:
Service will remain at half hour intervals throughout the day. Service will be cut to every hour at 4:08 pm going Upvalley, and be cut to every hour going Downvalley at 8:15 pm.
