During holidays, many transit agencies (with the exception of some larger city transit agencies like NYCMTA for example) scale back service due to lower ridership and to allow many of their employees to take a day off. Below are some of the holiday service hours for several Tampa Bay area transit agencies.
New Year’s Day: No bus service and limited paratransit service, however streetcars run on normal hours.
MLK Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Friday after Thanksgiving, and December 26: Saturday level bus and paratransit service, streetcars run on normal hours.
Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day: All transit services are suspended on these days.
Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day: No bus service.
All other holidays: Sunday level bus service.
MCAT & SCAT:
No holiday service with either agency, however the Longboat Trolley runs all year round.
