The city is limiting all MTU bus use to essential travel only because of the coronavirus, officials announced this week. Riders should be using it for essential purposes only, such as reaching a job, health care facility, child care, grocery store or food bank.
In additions, starting Monday, March 23, MTU will begin hourly service instead of 30 minutes. The first bus will run at 5:40 a.m. and continue hourly, ending at 10:40 p.m. It will also discontinue its Sunday service, only operating six days a week for the foreseeable future.
MTU also is requesting all passengers use the rear doors to board and exit the bus, when possible.
The Grand River Station lobby is closed, and the Municipal Service Center is closed to the public. All passes can be purchased online or over the phone.
The late-night Safe Ride bus that brings passengers from downtown to college campuses is cancelled until further notice.
