Service Plan for Driver Shortages

Due to labor shortages for bus drivers, Greenlink enacted a Contingency Plan that will go into immediate effect at any time Greenlink has exhausted all available resources to continue operating a route(s) during the service day leaving a minimum of one (1) dispatcher and one (1) supervisor remaining to monitor operations at the Greenlink Terminal.

Reductions in service range from:

  • Reducing service frequency on Route 602: Woodruff Connector – which would mean bus service is available at bus stops along Route 602 every 60 minutes instead of bus service being available every 30 minutes
  • Using one bus to service two different routes – which would mean that the vehicle and driver will alternate which route is served every other trip, providing bus service to each route every 120 minutes instead of every 60 minutes
  • Combining two routes into one new route, traveling outbound on one route and then coming back into the Transit Center along a completely different route – which would mean bus service will only be available every 60 minutes on one side of the road depending on the new route’s design

Reduced service outlined in this plan may need to go into immediate effect at any time. Please use these methods to receive real-time information and notifications about service changes:
