Snow Routes

Last Updated: Dec. 2, 2019

The LRTA works in all kinds of weather to provide safe, reliable, and convenient service. In some cases, this means using alternate routes. Snow routes and detour information is available from drivers, from signs posted on the buses, through radio station announcements, the LRTA website, the LRTA’s mobile friendly site, and the LRTA’s information number. Snow route detours are also shown on the map of each printed schedule.

To ensure the safety of both passengers and drivers, the LRTA has established the following “SNOW ROUTES” during winter weather conditions.

Only Routes 1, 2, & 6 are impacted with detours due to snow routes. All other routes run as indicated in Maps and Schedules unless otherwise indicated in Alerts
