To our riders: thank you

This last year has been difficult. Due to the operator shortage, we had to cancel trips often with little notice. This was a major inconvenience, particularly for light rail commuters. With the COVID-19 pandemic, ridership has declined 70%, necessitating a 40% reduction in service.

Thank You!
