MOUNTAIN LINE TO REDUCE SERVICE ON ROUTES 2 AND 4
Flagstaff, AZ (November 15, 2023) –
Effective Monday, November 20, Mountain Line is reducing services on Routes 2 and 4 due to ongoing staffing shortages.
Routes 2 and 4 will continue to operate on a weekend schedule for frequency, but with the weekday span of service. This means that routes will start and end at approximately the same time they currently do on weekdays, but buses will not run as often.
The morning and afternoon Route 2 deviations to Gemini Rd./BASIS are operational, but the times are slightly different due to the reduced schedule. Click the links for complete weekday Route 2 and Route 4 schedules, which can also be found on the route pages on Mountain Line’s website.
“In order to prioritize service reliability for our riders and work-life balance for our staff, we made the difficult decision to reduce service on two Mountain Line routes,” said Mountain Line CEO and General Manager Heather Dalmolin. “Service cuts are a last resort, and we will focus our efforts on recruitment and retention so we can restore full service in a sustainable manner.”
Mountain Line is the transit agency in northern Arizona operating fixed route bus service on nine routes, paratransit service, vanpool, and seasonal Mountain Express service to Arizona Snowbowl. www.mountainline.az.gov for more information.
