Veterans Day 2017 Holiday Service Schedule

Saturday, November 11, 2017 is Veterans Day, with Friday, November 10, 2017 being observed by government offices.  While most transit agencies that I cover will operate a normal weekday schedule on November 10 & a normal Saturday schedule on November 11, some agencies may have exceptions as to which routes will run. Other agencies (specifically some smaller agencies) will not operate at all on Saturday or both days. Please see the following list to see if your respective transit agency will operate on Veterans Day.

As always, I want to thank all those who are currently serving in our nation’s military, or have served in the past. Thank you!

Customer Service


Veterans Ride FREE With Proper ID

Some transit agencies, including HART & PSTA, are allowing veterans with proper military or veteran identification to use their transit systems for FREE as a “Thank You” for serving our great nation. Please check with your transit agency to see if they are doing this. For HART & PSTA, FREE rides are valid on board all local, limited express/commuter, express, and trolley routes. Paratransit & Link Services (HyperLINK, Direct Connect) are not included. HART will honor these FREE rides on 11/11/17 & PSTA will honor them on both 11/10 & 11/11/17.

As always, I try to make sure that all information in this post is correct. Schedule information is obtained from the transit agencies themselves, so they are ultimately responsible for what goes out to customers. However, if you spot something that I’ve typed that is incorrect, please let me know as soon as possible so that I may make corrections.


And one last reminder!

Daylight Savings Time in the United States ends at 2:00am on Sunday, 11/4/17.

Be sure to set your clocks back one hour before you head to bed tomorrow, 11/3/17. I hope everyone enjoys their extra hour of rest!
