RiverCities Transit Bus Fares Reinstated August 3

Beginning August 3, 2020, fare collection on RiverCities Transit and RiverCities LIFT will resume, and regular Monday - Saturday service returns for the first time since March 30. Customers will have an opportunity to purchase passes at the Transit Center and Kelso City Hall starting July 27. Ridership has begun to increase since the initial government shutdown in late March. Reinstating regular service will allow passengers to spread out their essential trips during the less busy travel times between 6:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Front door boarding will also resume in August, and riders are encouraged to exit the rear door of the bus. Plexiglass doors were installed to protect operators and passengers at the front door where fares are collected. Additionally, vehicle loads have been reduced to allow no more than ten passengers on the bus to encourage social distancing while riding. Face coverings are required by state mandate with some exceptions.

The Transit Center lobby will re-open on July 27 at 8:00 a.m. Up to five (5) customers will be allowed into the lobby to access the Customer Service counter at a time, but lobby seating, and the restrooms will not be available until further notice.

RiverCities Transit remains committed to the health and safety of the community it serves while continuing to provide an essential service.
