Pullman transit to adjust bus lines

Pullman Transit has announced it will make service changes effective April 1 through May 10. The move comes in response to reduced ridership and support of Gov. Jay Inslee’s Stay Home order while continuing to provide essential services.

The Crimson Express and Gray Express routes will operate with one less bus, running at 30 minute frequencies. The Coffee Route and Coug B Express route will be discontinued as their stops and travel paths overlap with other routes.

Services that will remain unchanged include the Blue, Silver, Paradise, Loop, Coug A, Wheat and Lentil routes. Weekend services will also remain unchanged. Beginning on Sunday, May 10, summer Community Service will begin as scheduled, with service available from 6:30 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.
