July 4, 2016 Holiday Services

July 4 Holiday Transit Schedules Banner 11

Independence Day will be on Monday, July 4, 2016. Because of the holiday, most transit agencies will be operating limited to no services. Please keep this in mind as you plan your holiday festivities and make alternate arrangements if possible. In some municipalities, transit agencies may provide modified services to assist with getting people to and from Independence Day events such as evening firework displays.
