COAST BUS: Partial Service Curtailment Notice for 4/3, Full Service Curtailment Notice for 4/4

Apr 3, 2024

Due to the winter storm that is predicted to arrive later today and be in place through Thursday, the decision has been made to curtail all services effective mid-evening on Wednesday, April 3, and Thursday, April 4, 2024.

“The mixing of precipitation, rates of snowfall, high winds, visibility concerns, and total amount predicted makes it look like travel will be very messy late Wednesday and Thursday. We feel this is the most sensible decision we could make based on the predicted conditions,” stated Rad Nichols, Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation (COAST) Executive Director.

Based on the current forecast, COAST plans to return to normal operations on Friday, April 5, 2024. When COAST resumes service, expect delays as the storm continues to pull away and storm cleanup may still be affecting the roads and walkways.

Nichols commented further, “As always, when traveling after the storm, please be safe on your way to and from bus stops. Please do not wait for the bus on top of snowbanks. Find the nearest driveway opening; make sure you are visible to the bus operator and wave as the bus approaches. In low light conditions wave a lit cell phone or flashlight to make you more visible to the bus operator.” COAST recommends wearing bright clothing, having reflectors, and carrying a flashlight.
