How To Ride
Whenever the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning or watch for Alachua County and surrounding areas, RTS will provide regular city fixed route and campus shuttle service until sustained winds reach 39 mph. At that time RTS buses will finish their current run and service will be suspended for the duration of the emergency. RTS will suspend service for complementary Paratransit Service when sustained winds reach 35 mph.
