Red & Blue Routes suspended in response to COVID-19

Alert Affects: Blue Line, Red Line

The blue and red routes are suspended until further notice.

Capital Transit is suspending fixed-route services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Both the blue route (Glendale Street to Walmart) and the red route (Target to St. Peter’s Hospital) are closed to the public until further notice. Capital Transit is taking this day by day. With COVID-19 cases in Montana, the health and well being of both Capital Tranist staff and the public is paramount.

Other challenges are faced during this time with COVID-19 and public transportation:

  1. We have a limited number of qualified drivers (CDL with Passenger Endorsement), and to lose drivers means additional impacts on our ability to provide sustainable service of any type/form.
  1. We have a limited number of backup buses, therefore losing a frontline bus could impact our ability to provide sustainable service.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has for our riders.

Capital Transit also operates an ADA Complementary Paratransit Service. This service will continue to operate but is subject to change in response to COVID-19. As of now, the Paratransit Service operates weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and the rider must have an approved application for service. As always, paratransit is not an emergency medical transport service provider. If you or anyone you know is experiencing a medical emergency of any type or may be experiencing symptoms associated with the COVID-19 virus, please call your medical care provider or 911 for assistance.
