At times routes may have to pause in place where they are in route depending on conditions, but routes should resume on a regular service schedule as the weather and roadways permit. We do suggest that if possible please try to make any trips before or after the inclement weather is expected. Changes or suspensions to service will be posted on ridecarta.com and on all social media channels. Please check the transit app to track the bus when possible.
