Bus service drops in-town charges due to cold weather
February 4, 2014
The director of the local busing service said in an emailed announcement this morning that, due to the frigid arctic air blasting into north-central Montana, the in-town routes will run free of charge through Friday.
“Enjoy a warm, comfortable safe ride to your medical, shopping and many other destinations identified on the schedule,” North Central Montana Transit Director Jim Lyons said in the release. “Please contact 265-4762 with any questions you may have.”
National Weather Service predicts lows from minus 17 tonight through 6-below-zero Friday, with highs ranging from minus 2 tonight to 12 above Friday.
Normally, the charge for the in-town route is $1 per ride.
