Introducing – Journeys Afar


While I’ve written several Transit Tourism type posts during the course of the past several years, I never really had a name for the series. But now I do!

Journeys Afar will take you on a documented journey along my out-of-town trips by which I’m able to utilize public transportation. Such posts will include re-launches of my 2013 trip to Norfolk, VA & my 2017 trip to New York City, as well as my more recent visits to Jacksonville, FL & San Francisco, CA.

Be sure to look out for my first Journeys Afar posts in the coming weeks – beginning with a re-launch of my first & second NYC 2017 posts, followed by my first SFO 2019 post.

Veterans Day 2019 Holiday Service Schedules

Honoring those who served


Monday, November 11 is Veterans Day, with Friday, November 10, 2019 being observed by government offices.  While most transit agencies that I cover will operate a normal weekday 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!


Holiday Transit Schedules

Normal weekday schedules will be in effect for many transit agencies. Below are the agencies that I cover by which will either have exceptions in service or will not operate at all. If you are unsure of whether your transit agency will operate on Veterans Day, please contact them directly.

  • Polk Citrus Connection (Lakeland/Winter Haven, FL): No Service.
  • StarMetro (Tallahassee, FL): Saturday schedule w/Night Service operating.
  • Hampton Roads Transit (Hampton/Norfolk, VA): Regular weekday service across all modes. However, Routes 919 & 922 will not operate.

Customer Service

Transit agencies that are operating normal weekday schedules will very likely have their customer service centers operating on normal weekday hours as well. For those agencies that are operating with service exceptions, please contact them directly for hours of operation.


Veterans Ride FREE!

Some transit agencies are running special Ride FREE promotions on Veterans Day to all those (active or retired) who have served in the military & supply valid ID when boarding. To see if your transit agency is taking part, please contact them directly.


Disclaimer

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.
