Veterans Day 2014 Holiday Transit Schedule

Veterans Day will be on Tuesday, November 11, 2013. Unlike most Federal holidays, where transit services are typically limited to weekend-level services, most transit districts tend to operate on a typical weekday schedule on Veterans Day, with some districts operating weekday services with modifications.

One exception is HART, which typically runs Saturday-level local bus services on Veterans Day. HART will not run express bus services, MetroRapid, and most HARTflex routes (with the exception of the Northdale route).
