Henderson Area Rapid Transit (HART) announced alterations in routes due to challenges with staffing impacted by Covid-19 and low ridership, Thursday afternoon.
The organization announced the alterations would start Saturday, August 21st, and that the "Shopper Shuttle" route would not run as normal for the time being. The route would be served by the East End/Eastgate bus in conjunction with the North Route.
Also, the availability of Paratransit vehicles on Saturdays may be subject to reduced hours as well, and riders should allow extra times for busses to run the routes.
Officials say the new schedule would be re-evaluated in September. Riders are required to wear masks inside busses and asked to maintain "social distancing".
Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) has extended the mask requirement until Jan. 18, 2022. Masks must be worn over both the nose and mouth while on public transit.
HART wanted to thank riders for their flexibility.
