Grays Harbor Transit will be reducing service effective April 6th. A press release from the transit authority said that “because our riders are doing the right thing and staying at home, ridership is down by approximately 67%.” The transit will continue to be free of charge to accomodate social distancing, and will be operating on the weekend schedule, Monday through Sunday.
The press release follows:
Grays Harbor Transit would like to send out a sincere thank you to the community for their continued support and understanding. With the health and safety of the public and its employees in mind on March 10th, Grays Harbor Transit Board authorized GHT to activate its emergency management plan, due to the eminent spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic in Grays Harbor County.
Due to the concerns of the health and safety of all involved and because our riders are doing the right thing and staying at home, ridership is down by approximately 67%. The Transit Authority regretfully announces the beginning of a service reduction, effective April 6th.
GHT will be operating on the weekend schedule, Monday through Sunday, at this time. The service will still be free until further notice. The social distancing will be enforced on all GHT’s buses and coaches as per state recommendation. That means when the destination sign reads “This Bus is Full”, the passengers trying to board the bus will need to wait for the next bus. We apologize for any inconvenience, but this is for the safety of our employees and our passengers.
GHT would like to inform you that as soon as the current pandemic is over, it will start to reinstate its full services as soon as possible. Please refer to our website at www.ghtransit.com and digital signage, for all GHT’s developing information. If you have any questions, please contact our dispatch at 360-532-2770 or toll free at 1-800-562-9730.
