AkGlobe News/10277207

~ Juneau, Alaska - Capital Transit has announced the temporary suspension of bus Routes 5 & 6, effective April 22, 2024. The decision was made due to current shortages in drivers and maintenance personnel, which has impacted the transit system's ability to operate at full capacity.

According to a spokesperson for Capital Transit, the suspension of Routes 5 & 6 is a strategic move to minimize the impact on riders during this challenging period. These routes have the lowest ridership and suspending them will affect the least number of passengers.

Affected riders are encouraged to use alternative routes such as Routes 3 & 4, which cover adjacent areas and can serve as viable options during this suspension. Capital Transit understands that this may cause inconvenience for some passengers and assures that they are committed to ensuring efficient transportation options for all.
