Rider Alerts are posted when any route or group of routes is forced to detour or close due to construction projects, accidents or severe weather conditions. The changes announced by Rider Alerts are almost always temporary and the route or routes affected by the conditions will resume normal operating status as soon as possible.
Service Changes are planned reconfigurations of routes and schedules. These types of route and schedule changes may be needed because of changes in traffic patterns, ridership findings or a planned re-allocation of resources. Service Changes are permanent reconfigurations and are usually enacted three times each calendar year.
