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.
