christmas-2016-banner-1

Christmas is just around the corner! As always, many transit agencies will be operating limited to no service on Christmas Day. However, since Christmas is on a Sunday this year, transit agencies that normally operate on a Sunday will operate their typical Sunday schedules. The only exception will be transit agencies that operate Sunday service; but do not operate on major holidays such as Christmas.

Note: Transit agencies not listed on the Exceptions/No Service lists will either operate their normal schedules or have not yet announced their holiday service schedules. Please contact your respective transit agency to see if they will operate through the weekend.

Many transit agencies will be operating normal weekday services on Friday, December 23, 2016. However, many businesses and agencies will be observing Christmas Eve on this day and therefore, some transit agencies may have exceptions to normal service. Such exceptions are listed below:
