Service Curtailments

Thursday, February 9, 2017

Due to poor visibility caused by snow and approaching darkness, COAST will be limiting service around dusk. The snow is forecast to lighten between 5:00pm and 7:00pm. If visibility returns to a safe level by 8:00pm, evening service will resume. For detailed closures by route, see below. If these closures result in you being stranded, please call our office at 603-743-5777, extension 103. Service resumption will be announced via our twitter handle (@COASTbus), COAST’s Facebook page, and on coastbus.org.
