TransPorte to Offer Saturday Rides Again

(La Porte, IN) - TransPorte has announced it will once again provide weekend rides to residents.


Beginning on April 3, the transportation system will resume its Saturday service from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., said Transporte Manager Beth West.


West said operating hours were scaled back in November to help slow the spread of the virus.


"As COVID-19 numbers continue to drop throughout the greater La Porte community, we feel it is appropriate to resume our normal operating schedule. As always, we appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we've worked to protect both our drivers and riders," she said.



West said many health and safety restrictions are still in place like limits on the number of passengers to ensure social distancing.


Riders must still have a mask and wear it for the entire duration of their ride.


Drivers are allowed to provide a free face mask to anyone who needs one, she said. 


West also noted buses will be running on Good Friday, which is April 2, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.


For a ride or more information contact Transporte at 362-6565.
