Service Changes - July 2020 - VIA Metropolitan Transit
Service Changes – July 2020

VIA Metropolitan Transit will make additional modifications to its Essential Service Schedule beginning Monday, July 27, 2020.

All printable route schedules for current bus service have been updated and are now available online. See Bus Service page.

As part of its efforts to assess and adapt to changes brought on by COVID-19, VIA is closely monitoring ridership demands and making alterations to maintain safe, reliable service for customers and operators. This includes adding service and frequency to routes that continue to see high ridership, adjusting routes with low ridership, and modifying others based on changing road conditions.

VIA encourages riders to only make essential trips during this time. VIA will continue to run essential service for those who must travel for work at an exempted business or operation, obtain food and supplies, or help care for others. All passengers also must maintain social distancing aboard the bus whenever possible, and are required to wear a face covering while on a VIA vehicle or at a VIA facility.

Use VIA’s Online Trip Planner up to 14 days in advance, and enter a trip date later than July 27, 2020, to see how these changes could affect your travel. For details, visit VIAinfo.net, or call the goLine at (210) 362-2020.
