BART is switching to on-demand service for riders needing to tend to essential services only. This includes Doctor and Pharmacy visits, nutrition and grocery needs, and employment. Riders must now call in at least 24 hours in advance for all rides. Buses will no longer stop at regular bus stops unless a rider has called in and is waiting at a designated spot.

National Get On Board Day Was Held On April 25, 2019
Bay Area Rural Transit, Red Cliff Transit and Bad River Transit joined other public transportation systems nationwide and participated in National Get on Board Day on Thursday, April 25th by offering
free fares to all riders!
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2019 National Get On Board Day was a day that encouraged people to support public transportation and showcased the benefits it brings to communities. Each weekday in the U.S., 34 million people board public transportation. Additionally, public transportation is a cornerstone of local economies in urban, suburban, and rural communities. In fact, public transportation helps to make a community economically prosperous and competitive. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns, powering community growth and revitalization.
