Monday, January 19, 2015 is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, where we take a moment to celebrate the life and achievements of the famed Civil Rights leader. 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 MLK Day. Some districts however may operate on a Saturday schedule.
In the Tampa Bay Area, PSTA, MCAT, and SCAT will operate on a normal weekday schedule, as well as various trolleybus routes, and the TECOline Streetcar. HART bus services will operate on a Saturday schedule (no Express, MetroRapid, FLEX – except the Northdale route, and trolleybus). Transit services in Polk, Pasco, Hernando, and Citrus will not operate.
In the Orlando area; LYNX will operate a normal weekday schedule, but Routes (Links) 416 and 427 will not operate. SunRail will also not operate.
In the Hampton Roads Area, the HRT bus system will operate on a Saturday schedule. However, LRT and Ferry services will operate on a normal weekday schedule.
If you have any questions regarding holiday transit services, please contact your respective transit district for details. Customer service centers will be open normal hours (unless otherwise specified by the transit district). Customer service centers will be closed in districts that do not operate services on MLK Day.
In Tampa, HART customer service centers at the UATC and Marion/Downtown will be open from 7:00am until 5:00pm. HART at City Hall will be closed. The HART InfoLine will be available between 8:00am until 5:00pm.
In Norfolk and Hampton, VA, HRT customer service centers will be staffed from 9:00am until 4:00pm. The Silverleaf customer service center will be closed.
