ART buses are mostly on regular schedules this morning, with some modifications due to remaining icy roads.
Information about remaining route modifications due to icy roads is available on the Transit website under Temporary Service Alerts.
Following a weekend of snow and icy roads, local bus service schedules were modified this morning. By this afternoon, routes were expanded, though some are a bit curtailed.
While Asheville Public Works crews worked around the clock clearing and salting roads, black ice remains a hazard with the bitter cold that continues in Asheville.
Here is the modified schedule for Monday, January 9, 2017:
*If road conditions improve throughout Monday, service may be extended.
