Modified services during inclement weather

To the extent possible, operations will try to follow regular routes. It is not unusual for some portion of the service area to experience icy conditions while another portion is clear. Operations supervisors will survey the situation and determine if it is safe to use regular routing. However, there are many segments of routes that may be considered too hazardous to traverse in icy conditions and staff have proactively worked out detours to avoid them. Most hazards involve steep slopes and bridges, however, other hazards may include areas that remain shaded thus slowing the ice melt, narrow residential streets with on-street parking, or even shallow slopes with stops where there is insufficient traction to overcome both gravity and inertia.  Detours are described below.

Weather Detours for Buses

(Routes not listed below will run regular route.)

Service will operate on an hourly schedule with the following exceptions:

  • There will be no service on Molly the Trolley.
  • There will be no service on The Dash.
  • Routes 23 may operate later in the day if Tarrant County College classes begin later in the morning depending on if sufficient melting occurs and resources are available.

Express Routes 61, 63, 65, or 66 will not operate during Severe Winter Weather.
