Bus & T Service for Saturday, Feb. 13

Note: These service details will cover Saturday overnight into Sunday morning. The next update will be provided Sunday morning.


Saturday, Feb. 13 Bus & T Status

Multiple bus routes will continue to operate on detours on Saturday and about 10 routes will remain out of service as Port Authority continues to recover from the recent winter storms.

Road conditions continue to improve across our service area, although some streets remain unusable. Some sidewalks, transit stops and stations also are snow-covered, creating difficulties for riders.

As a result, riders may still encounter delays on Saturday, as well as minor, temporary detours for tree or snow removal.

A list of bus and T routes that are out of service, or on a detour, is posted below.

An overview of Port Authority's service levels for Saturday:

  • Bus service: About 10 routes remain out of service. Multiple routes continue to operate with detours or limited service areas.
  • The T: Operating on a regular schedule and providing normal service to Downtown stations (except Gateway, which is closed during construction). The 52 Allentown light rail route will not operate (the nearby 46K Knoxville bus route is a possible alternative).
  • Mon Incline: In service.
  • Wabash HOV: Open.
  • I-279 HOV: Open.
  • Fifth Avenue Bus Lane in Oakland: Buses still detouring to Forbes.
