As Lewis County continues to reopen, the need for public transportation is increasing. Last spring, Twin Transit routes were reduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent stay-at-home order. Several passenger-centric updates followed, each tailored to better serve our community. Now we are updating our service model to meet increased need, while continuing to ensure passenger safety.
Starting on Monday, October 12, Twin Transit will discontinue back-to-back busing and replace it with a new high-frequency busing model.
The new system will increase service between the high-traffic hours of 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
During this time, bus stops will be serviced every 30 minutes. Service outside these hours will continue at regular intervals.
This system will make it easier to access work, grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other essentials. It will also support economic development by connecting community members with local businesses and services.
Stringent safety protocols like nightly bus sanitation, masking, 10-person passenger limits, and social distancing will remain in place, so Twin Transit passengers can continue to ride with confidence.
We know you have places to go. We’ll help you get there.
