UF Homecoming impacts SF RTS routes

RTS bus service will be impacted this weekend due to UF Homecoming festivities.  Reduced service will be in place on Friday, Nov. 6, with detours during the Homecoming Parade.

On Friday, Nov. 6, RTS will provide reduced service on City Fixed Routes. An “R” on RTS Route Schedules indicates buses that run when RTS reduces service on a route. There will be no service on City Fixed Routes 19, 22, 27, 28, 29, 37, 38, 39, 40, 46, 62, 76 and 77. There will be regular ADA service.

There will be no service on Routes 121 (Commuter Lot) and 129 (E. Circulator/Sorority Row).    Routes 119 (Family Housing) and Route 126 (East/West Circulator) will run their normal schedule.  Later Gator service will be available during its normal times.

During the Gator Homecoming Parade, RTS will have route detours and delays beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until the parade route is opened to regular traffic.
