Transpo public transit will continue, despite the winter storm.

Transpo drivers are trained to operate vehicles safely in inclement weather and Transpo has procedures in place to continue service in winter weather conditions.

Here are some simple steps passengers can take to ensure they reach their destination safely and on time:

  1. Dress warmly.
  2. Wait at a designated bus stop – if snow or ice prevents you from standing at a stop, please stay as close to safety as possible, watch the bus and “flag” the driver as it approaches the bus bus so that the bus can stop in a safe and timely manner.
  3. Be careful and watch out for snow and ice when getting on and off the bus.
  4. Weather-related delays are always possible in bad weather, so please plan accordingly. If possible, you might want to consider taking an earlier bus to ensure you reach your destination on time.
  5. Thank your driver for getting you safely where you need to go!

The Transpo information line is available at (574) 233-2131.

In the unlikely event that service is cancelled, local media such as 95.3 MNC will provide information as well as Transpo’s website, social media and phone lines.
