Why don’t the buses run later each day or on weekends?

The department receives most of it operating funds from the Federal government. Funding is based on many factors which include population and annual ridership. The funds available to Transit Triangle limit us to the hours the system is currently operating.


Can you hold the bus?

No, our operators work very hard to maintain the published schedule to get our passengers where they need to get to on-time. Waiting is not practical.
