With the recent weather forecast calling for
record-low temperatures and winter weather conditions over the
weekend, Coast RTA officials will monitor weather conditions
throughout the period to determine if there will be a need to delay
"Safety is Coast RTA's top priority. For the safety
of our customers, as well as our employees, service will only be
provided when we are certain road conditions are safe," says Coast
RTA General Manager Brian Piascik. "We want our passengers to be
aware of the winter weather threat which may cause delays in bus
service throughout the weekend and Monday."
Current plans are to run the routes as scheduled for
Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Any decisions on bus service delays or
cancellations will be announced by 10 a.m. Saturday, January 7 and
10 a.m. Sunday, January 8. Please watch for future updates as
announcements will be made via local news media outlets; social
media channels and the Coast RTA APP.
"Coast RTA apologizes for any inconvenience this
delay may create but takes great strides to put the safety of our
passengers and employees first," said Piascik. "We will alert
the community of any change of schedule/bus service, as soon as we
make the call. Otherwise, we will deem it safe to proceed
with our regular schedule."
For specific route questions, please call Customer
Service at 843.488.0865. Updates to any delays/service changes will
be made via the Coast RTA APP (download at www.CoastRTARideTracker.com)
or social media channels as well as news media.
