Effective Monday, February 1, 2021 River Valley Transit bus operators will resume collecting fares and passengers may enter at the front doors. Passengers are asked to exit the bus via the rear doors. After 2 months without fares, regular fares will again be required.
Buses will be changed and cleaned frequently. Our goal is to keep all passengers safe and River Valley Transit will follow precautions and proper policies. Some items to keep in mind;
Maintain a safe distance of 6 feet or more from others when waiting for a bus, boarding, or riding any RVT bus.
Wash hands or use sanitizer frequently throughout the day.
Bus service between Williamsport and Lock Haven will begin at 9:30am on Friday, January 29th, 2021. The new Friday and Saturday “Lock Haven Link” will operate until 5:30pm and is a simple loop linking the two communities. “Changes to our routes happen when our riders’ needs change. We have found a solution to provide a trip that stops in Jersey Shore and throughout Clinton County,” said Adam Winder, River Valley Transit General Manager. “The new service will replace the recent one that ended in 2020 as part of a transportation study. The new route is much simpler and will be easier to use for bus passengers.”
The bus will stop at various points including The Jersey Shore Weis Market, the Clinton County Community Center, Walmart in Mill Hall and various stops along the route. Passengers can get complete details on the routes using the MyRide App, River Valley Transit’s exclusive bus locator and planning tool. The information may be obtained on the website www.rideRVT.com, by phone calls to the RVT administration office and from bus operators on the Lock Haven Link.
The first 2 days of the Lock Haven Link service there will be no fare required. Regular fares on all fixed routes will resume on Monday, February 1, 2021. Due to Covid 19 restrictions and precautions fares were temporarily waved in the recent months. For the safety of passengers and bus operators River Valley Transit asks that face coverings be worn, maintain 6 feet of distance between others at all times and wash hands or use sanitizer frequently throughout the day.
