Fixed Route Service Reduction
Skagit Transit reduces bus service due to COVID 19
Skagit Transit will reduce its fixed-route bus service to a modified schedule, beginning Monday, March 30, and continuing until further notice.
The service reduction is prompted by sharp declines in ridership due to the coronavirus pandemic. Fixed-route service has experienced a significant system-wide drop in daily ridership. Skagit Transit trips saw a drop of 52% during the 3rd full week of March compared to the same period of last year. A service reduction is designed to maintain a financially resilient and sustainable transit system that keeps our region moving and to ramp up when the COVID 19 crisis is over.
Here are details of the reduced service:
Reducing the Mt Vernon Routes 205 & 206 from 30 minute to hourly service
Route 205 will depart from Skagit Station on the hour starting 6:00am weekdays and 8:00am weekends
Route 206 will depart from Skagit Station at 35 minutes past the hour starting 6:35am weekdays and 8:30am weekends
Route 409 in Anacortes will cease to operate until further notice.
Route 410 will make the following adjustments
Route 410 will visit the Guemes Island Ferry every hour
Route 410 will deviate to the Island Hospital on request
Skagit Transit is an essential public service and we know that people are counting on us to be there for them during this unprecedented time. Caring for our riders and employees is our top priority.
