WRTA to Suspend Service 2-2-15
2-1-15 The WRTA is suspending service tomorrow Monday February 2nd due to the severe winter warning of an expected twelve plus inches of snow. The city and the surrounding suburbs have done a yeoman’s job cleaning up after last Tuesday’s record breaking storm and we were back to regular routes by Friday afternoon. Unfortunately, the severe cold has dampened the shrinking of snow banks, turned them into concrete like obstructions and the expectation of another twelve inches of snow on the still narrow streets will put a further burden on the communities to keep streets open. We are concerned about the condition of our bus stops and the ability of our riders to get to a bus stop and therefore the safe and prudent decision is to suspend service for the safety of the public, our employees and the buses as well. Thank you for your understanding and like last Wednesday our maintenance crew will prepare the WRTA to resume normal service Tuesday morning.
