Winter Weather Plan and Route Deviation MapsBrinnon Route Bus Driving In Snow.

When road conditions are snowy or icy, it is common for Jefferson Transit to operate using snow routes instead of regular routing in areas that are susceptible.

  • Always check rider alerts for buses that may be on a deviation route.
  • A rider alert will post website each weekday by 5:30am and on weekends by 8:00am, indicating which routes will be deviated.
  • Rider Alerts are updated Periodically throughout the day
  • Check your buses current snow route deviation maps (see below)

Winter Weather Tips:

  • Give yourself plenty of time to get to your bus stop.
  • Use bus stops on main arterial streets
  • If your stop is on a hill, wait for the bus at the top or bottom of the hill, not the middle.
  • Buses may run late, please anticipate that it may take longer to reach your destination.
  • Your bus may slide when it stops. When you see the bus, step back from the curb on the sidewalk or grass. Wait until the bus some to a complete stop then approach the door.
  • Dress warmly.
