Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird today announced that StarTran is responding to a decline in ridership by moving to a reduced service schedule this week and planning an on-demand service pilot project in April.
The changes that begin Thursday, April 2 include the following:
“We expect ridership to continue to decline as more residents follow the social distancing recommendations to stay home and telework,” said Mayor Gaylor Baird. “At the same time, we understand that public transportation is essential for many. The pilot project we hope to start in mid-April will use smaller vehicles to provide on-demand service.”
