Schedule Changes to Affect My Ride Transit Service

Schedule Changes to Affect My Ride Transit Service

The safety of our riders and employees is a top priority for My Ride and the City of Rock Hill.  We are closely monitoring the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation and taking direction from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Beginning Sunday, March 22, My Ride will operate on a modified schedule as follows:

  • Sunday service is suspended until further notice.
  • Route 1 – Downtown/Knowledge Park Loop is suspended every day until further notice.
  • My Ride Direct paratransit service will follow the modified fixed-route service, operating in the areas of Routes 2, 3 and 4 with no Sunday service until further notice. We request paratransit appointments be limited to essential travel such as work, healthcare appointments, pharmacy and grocery shopping.

The modified schedule will be in effect until further notice.  Route 2 – Saluda/Heckle, Route 3 – Cherry/Riverwalk and Route 4 – Dave Lyle/Galleria will operate on normal schedule 7 AM – 7 PM Monday through Saturday. 

We are taking precautions by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. We ask riders to practice social distancing when riding, leaving as much space as possible between you and other riders. Additionally, don’t ride if you’re not feeling well, wash hands regularly with soap and water, and cover your coughs and sneezes.

 

“We are concerned for the health, safety and well-being of our passengers, drivers and the general public during this time,” said Mayor John Gettys.  “We recognize that My Ride transit plays a critical role in our community and many people rely on services daily. We plan to reestablish regular service as soon as is feasible.” 

The City will continue to monitor the pandemic and follow state and federal guidelines. Schedule changes can be found on MyRideRockHill.com and the My Ride mobile app, as well as @MyRideRockHill on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
