(BLOOMINGTON) – Bloomington Transit (BT) plans to continue operating on a spring break schedule during the week of March 29 through April 4. This schedule is subject to change depending on driver availability and ridership levels.
Transit ridership last week was down about 90 percent compared to the same period last year.
BT will reevaluate service plans on a daily basis and will announce any service adjustments with as much advance notice as possible. BT Access service continues to operate normally.
BT continues to implement protocols to provide physical distancing between drivers and passengers to limit community spread of COVID-19, including the following:
- Free fares on all fixed route and BT Access service buses.
- Passengers on fixed route buses will continue to board through the rear doors. Persons in wheelchairs and using other mobility devices may continue to board through the front door.
- The Downtown Transit Center is closed to the public. Portable restrooms have been set up outside of the center.
- Fixed route and BT Access vehicles are disinfected nightly with special equipment.

Bloomington Transit also offers BT Access, a specialized service available to persons with disabilities who are unable to use regular fixed route services.
