It will remain in place until Friday, May 28, 2021.
START continues to operate on a reduced level of service for the current fiscal year due reduction in service levels caused by the worldwide pandemic. Passengers can expect to see reduced operational hours that do not run as late into the evening when compared to the summer or winter schedules.

If you are planning on riding the START Bus this season, remember that there is a federal mask requirement in place that was issued per President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 13998 and the Transportation Security Administration’s security directive requiring masks to be worn on all public transit systems nationwide to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
This means that face coverings must be worn on all START buses, at all bus stops and shelters, and at any location where START Bus tickets or passes are bought or sold.
