Spring 2021: Proposed Service Changes for WeGo Public Transit

Since last Spring’s clarion call to remain “Safer at Home,” and reduce the spread of COVID-19, WeGo Public Transit has been providing safe transportation to those essential workers and to residents who need to reach the essentials. 

  

We can’t thank them enough for the good work of supporting the city in such a challenging time by keeping the transit system safe and clean for those who were riding. 

 

Thousands of riders per day still board those purple buses, so to better serve riders today, WeGo has proposed some service changes that would take effect this Spring. See their press release for more information. Click here for the Spanish language meeting flyer. 

  

The WeGo Public Transit buses have been on a modified service plan since September 2020. 

  

Customers are encouraged to find out more by viewing this presentation and chart outlining proposed changes. Click here for the Spanish language presentation.
