Bay Runner Hours Change June 1st

Service changes for Bay Runner take effect June 1, 2023.

New hours of operation will be:

  • 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday.
  • 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday.

The new hours reflect an adjustment to service as part-time residents and visitors decline in the summer. It also offers an opportunity for riders to reach their place of employment prior to 8 a.m.

“We want to provide not only the best customer service to the community, but also focus on cost savings during the off season,” he said, adding, “The Bay Runner has been an incredible success. And we continually encourage utilizing this free and convenient travel option to explore our beautiful city.”
