Rider Alert: Return to regular service schedule- Nov. 2, 2020

October 27th, 2020 by mnash

On March 30, 2020 with the outbreak of the Coronavirus Jefferson Transit began operating at a reduced level of service to protect public health. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things but one thing that remains the same is our commitment to safely get you where you need to go.  We have taken steps to protect our employees and riders and anticipate resuming full service on Monday, November 2, 2020.

Routes will operate Monday through Saturday using the Jefferson Transit Bus Schedule dated May 20, 2019 with the following exceptions.

  • Until further notice the #1 Brinnon route will end at the Black Point Turnaround; service to Triton Cove will resume when connecting service to Mason Transit becomes available.
  • Jefferson Transit’s Olympic Connection will remain on reduced service. Please continue to monitor our website for updates.

While returning to full service increases the number of trips per day please be aware boarding the bus will be on a first come first served basis; space limitations for soc

ial distancing limit the number of riders per bus and may require you wait for the next available bus or find alternate transportation.  We understand this is not an ideal situation, regrettably Jefferson Transit does not have the staffing and fleet resources to send vehicles to pick up overflow passengers.

  • Fare Free service remains in effect until further notice.  
  •  Haines Place and Four Corners customer service offices will remain closed.

As we work together through this difficult time we rely on our riders to protect themselves and one another. We ask that riders continue to follow Public Health masking directives, follow social distancing guidelines and use transit for essential travel activities allowed under Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Thank you for doing your part to support transit as an essential service.
