Saturday, July 4, 2015 is Independence Day here in the United States. Because this federal holiday falls on a Saturday this year, Friday, July 3 will be observed by the Federal government, meaning Federal offices will be closed.
On Friday, July 3, most transit agencies will operate on a normal weekday/Friday schedule. Please check with your respective transit agency to see if they have any special rules on which routes operate, or if they will not be running service at all that day. HART and HRT will both be running Saturday-level service on July 3.
On Saturday, July 4, most transit agencies will operate on a regular Saturday schedule. However, agencies that typically do not run services on Independence Day will not operate. Additionally, some agencies may choose to run Sunday-level service on the 4th instead of Saturday schedules.
