Rapid Transit to resume after two week suspension

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Rapid Transit is back on the road after a two week suspension after three drivers tested positive for COVID-19.

During the down time, RTS went through an extensive cleaning process on all buses, as well as the bus barn and transportation center.

The resumption of service brings a sigh of relief to residents who depend on public transit.

“People are always are walking and stuff, and it’s such a commute sometimes with children, and pregnant ladies,” says Rachel Garnier of Rapid City.

RapidRide is running from 7:30 AM to 4:15 PM.

Dial-A-Ride is going from 7:20 AM to 4:30 PM.
