Port Huron, MI — Things are getting back to normal for Blue Water Area Transit, as they are starting to re-open services. Buses will run fixed routes starting at 6:00 a.m. on Monday, June 22.
The M-29/I-94 commuter service to Mt. Clemens will begin on June 22, also. Demand Response, or Dial-a-Ride, will continue with riders calling to schedule their rides.
Riders are asked to observe safety precautions to avoid spreading COVID-19. If a bus has two doors, riders are asked to exit through the back doors only. Riders must wear face masks, and maintain social distance from the driver and other passengers. Members of the same household may sit together. Bus capacity will be reduced, so some riders may be passed by if the bus is full and will have to wait for a “stand-by” vehicle.
The suspension of fare collection ends on Monday also, with regular rates going back into effect. Rates range from 40 to 80 cents per ride.
Blue Water Area Transit is also opening the Downtown Transit Center on McMorran Boulevard and the Main Office on Lapeer Road.
