Muncie, IN—Muncie Indiana Transit System (MITS) is announcing a modification to service in response to COVID-19. This modification will take effect Monday March 30, 2020. Due to the restrictions on travel and businesses that have closed/shortened their hours, MITS will be running an enhanced Saturday schedule until further notice.
This means that Monday thru Friday all routes will begin at their normal Monday thru Friday start times (some adjustments will be made to ensure the service is consistent with Saturday run times). Routes will start earlier, but will run 30 minute or 1 hour service and end according to the normal Saturday schedule. The only exception to this is that 14/16 will run 45 minute service Monday thru Friday with the last trips ending at 5:40; 5:55 and 6:10. 14/16 service (1 hour) on Saturday will remain unchanged. MITSPlus will operate from 6:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 8:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. on Saturday. MITS will be updating the MITS Bus app and mitsbus.org to reflect these changes.
MITS employees are deep cleaning every vehicle at night and all drivers have been provided with supplies to disinfect surfaces between each trip. We will continue to serve those in the community that are dependent on our service, but we urge people to only travel when necessary until restrictions have been lifted, at which time we will resume our regular schedule. Additional details can be obtained by calling 765-289-MITS (6487) or checking the MITS Bus app or website beginning on 3/30/2020.
