Please keep bus loading zones and bus stops clear

In recent weeks there have been several drivers parking in the bus loading zone in the Crescent Harbor parking lot or at marked bus stops downtown. Please don’t do this, especially since the safety of our riders depends on us pulling the buses into these marked spots so riders can safely board or get off the buses.

At Crescent Harbor, the entire row of parking spaces next to Harbor Drive is designated as a bus loading zone from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on week days. Even one car next to the bathrooms can force our buses out into the driving lane. The only time you are allowed to park there is on weekends and holidays.

We also have several people parking in marked bus stops in front of the Sheet’ká Kwáan Naa Kahídi on Katlian Street or the framing shop on Lincoln Street. These spots are for buses only (not charter fishing vans). We need to get our bus completely out of the driving lane to pick up passengers, and it’s unsafe for our drivers to have to unload riders from the middle of the street.

Your help keeping these bus stops clear is greatly appreciated.

Construction project alters Blue Line route

 Due to construction on Lake Street, the Blue Line will have a route change from Monday, July 10, through the end of construction in mid-August to September. Instead of making a short run up and down Lake Street to Sitka High School and back, Blue Line will now do a loop. The Swan Lake Senior Center stop will be moved to between the Super 8 Motel and the Elks Club, then the Blue Line bus will turn left on Monastery Street to go to the high school. After meeting the Red Line for transfers at the high school, the Blue Line now will head down Peterson Street to Halibut Point Road, then will continue through the roundabout and out Sawmill Creek Road on its normal route. Once the construction project is finished, Blue Line will return to its normal route.
