Huntsville Public Transit is making adjustments to the Shuttle Bus schedule in order to continue to provide critical transportation services to the citizens of Huntsville and to protect the health and safety of the public during the coronavirus outbreak.

Beginning Wednesday, April 1, Shuttle Bus service will operate Monday through Friday starting at 6 a.m. and ending at 7 p.m.  Saturday service will be suspended effective Saturday, April 4, 2020.

“These changes will allow us to reallocate resources to comply with the State Health Department Order and still provide reliable, on-time transportation services for our citizens,” said Tommy Brown, Director of Parking and Public Transit.  “When the COVID-19 emergency is over service will resume the normal operating schedules.”

Handiride services will continue to operate from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  This allows Handiride to continue providing grocery shopping, medical and life-sustaining dialysis transportation for its clients.

Citizens who have questions can use the “Route Shout” app for Shuttle Bus schedules and the “Amble” app for Handiride service, or call the Public Transit office at 256-427-6811.
