Emergency West Busway Closure in Effect

Due to an earlier weather-related landslide, a portion of the West Busway has closed for clean up effective immediately.

Routes that use the busway will be detoured through the remainder of the week and into the weekend. This includes the 28X, G2, G3 and G31 routes along with Beaver County Transit's Route 4. The detours include temporary station closings and stop changes. For details, click here.

Normal service is expected to resume by Monday morning, possibly sooner.

The landslide occured earlier this morning between the busway's Sheraden and Ingram stations. Debris from the landslide caused one lane to close as a safety precaution, but buses were not detoured and stops were not affected. Both lanes are now closed to give crews and equipment access to the area for cleanup.
