DDOT November 2021 Service Changes

Picture of a DDOT bus driving down Woodward with the following headline, "DDOT November 2021 Service Changes"

DDOT is adjusting its service schedules for current ridership, buses, and operators.

Some buses may be scheduled to come less often, but the result will be service that is reliable and comes when expected.

This is expected to be a temporary adjustment, with gradual restoration of service expected to begin in early 2022.

We will be starting community conversations in early 2022 seeking your ideas for a reimagined route network.

The following service changes are planned for November 15, 2021. 

All routes will have new public timetables dated November 15, 2021, which will be made available online and in print. Routes not listed will continue to operate at their current frequencies with possible minor changes to timetables. 

These routes are temporarily suspended. Use nearby alternative routes.
