COVID-19 Changes in Service

The safety of our passengers and employees is very important to us. With that in mind, BATA's office will be closed to the public until further notice.

BATA has also reduced our hours of service. Buses will continue to serve the community for essential needs such as food security, medical appointments, and employment needs.
