Since May, passengers on Cortland transit busses have been able to ride free of charge to help them save money and stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Route deviations and Dial-A-Ride (the curb-to-curb demand response service which passengers can call to order 48-hours ahead of time) have also been free.
That will continue into the foreseeable future, says Cortland County Mobility Management Coordinator Catherine Wilde.
Cortland Transit will announce when fares will be reinstated.
As always, when riding on public transit, both drivers and the public are required to wear face coverings.
Since the outbreak in March, Wilde says Cortland Transit has seen a decline in ridership, but the implementation of no- cost rides has helped to turn that around.
Any questions about the local public bus system can call Wilde or Cortland Transit at (607) 758-3383.
