“These changes should allow the buses to stop less frequently to keep air circulating on the bus. They will also assist in improving on-time performance,” the release stated.

Effective June 29, AppalCART began requiring all passengers to wear face coverings, except those younger than 10 and who cannot wear a face covering due to a medical or behavioral condition.
