COVID-19 Ride On Temporary Free Bus Service and Boarding Changes

The Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will continue free bus service on all Ride On, Ride On extRa and Flash buses at least through the end of the current fiscal year, which ends on June 30, 2021 Throughout the COVID-19 health crisis, MCDOT has been operating the bus operations with fare collections suspended and was one of the first agencies in the country to implement this policy.

Ride On and Ride On ExtRa buses will resume front-door boarding starting Monday, April 5, 2021. On the Flash, a unique service that operates in the Route 29 corridor, passengers will now be able to use all doors. This measure will also make more space available for passengers inside the buses.

Pandemic safety measures remain in effect. All passengers are required to wear a face covering to board and must continue wearing the covering for the entire time riding on a bus. All buses have a supply of face coverings for those who do not provide their own. Social distancing is strongly recommended in all public spaces including onboard the buses and trains and at bus stops and shelters.
