2017-2018 Snow Emergency Schedule:

website-picture-box-snow-emergency-schedule.jpg

If a Snow Emergency is declared in the AM, the Snow Emergency Schedule will run all day.

SNOWSTORM GUIDELINES

 If a major snowstorm occurs in the SouthWest Transit service area, SouthWest Transit will  announce its decision to either:

                -Run all routes

                -Run the Snow Emergency schedule

                        or

-Cancel all serviceprior to the start of our weekday morning routes.

 

 How will you know if a Snow Emergency has been declared?

  • Visit SWTransit.org for updated information. Updated information can also be found on Facebook, Twitter, and the SW Transit phone app.
  • Official announcements regarding SouthWest Transit limited or cancelled service will be broadcast on radio on WCCO (830 AM) and on television on WCCO and KSTP.
  • Call 952-949-2BUS (2287). Our staff or voice mail message will offer up-to-date information.

 

IF A SNOW EMERGENCY IS   DECLARED LATER IN THE DAY:

  • If SWT runs regular service in the AM and conditions rapidly deteriorate during the day with schools and businesses closing, we MAY run Snow Emergency service beginning in the early afternoon. All SWT Express Buses will display “SNOW EMERGENCY” alternating with “ALL SOUTHWEST STOPS.”
  • Updated information will be available at 952-949-2287, swtransit.org, Facebook, Twitter and on our phone app.
  • All buses displaying “Snow Emergency” will go to SouthWest Station, where you might need to transfer to a shuttle bus to get to the location (P&R or street side stop) you started from in the morning.
  • Please be patient and be prepared to wait in our Customer Service area at SouthWest Station so we can group people together who are going in the same direction.
  • SW PRIME will operate but will not take any new ride requests. Those riders who need a return trip will be accommodated.
  • Washington Ave N (Downtown) will not be serviced. The first Downtown stop will be at Marquette Ave & 4th St.
  • Red Flex buses will begin as scheduled, but will be subject to significant delays.
  • Red Flex buses will not “flex” from their standard routing. Passengers must board along the scheduled routing.
  • The Flex Shuttle will operate as scheduled.
  • Depending on conditions, we will attempt to resume the remainder of our normal express schedule after 7:00 pm.
