The Big Lakes County bus is back on the road!

As always, of highest priority is the safety of passengers during the pandemic. Precautions are being taken, including disinfecting of ‘high touch’ areas.

Other measures include:

Social distancing will be enforced (some seats will not be available);

Hand sanitizer will be available on the bus. Passengers are required to sanitize their hands each time they board;

Passengers will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening when booking and again at pickup;

Any passenger with symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted to board the bus.

For schedules and prices, please call 1-877-925-3537.
