Temporary Night Owl Schedule Changes Beginning February 4, 2021
In an effort to better utilize our resources most effectively and efficiently as possible, AppalCART will be temporarily changing the operating hours of the Night Owl routes beginning Thursday, February 4, 2021.
The Night Owl Pop 105, Night Owl Express, and Night Owl Gold routes will close at 12 a.m. (midnight) each night (The Night Owl operates on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights during the Fall and Spring semesters).
AppalCART closely monitored ridership during the Fall 2020 semester. A recent analysis of our ridership and surveys completed by passengers utilizing the Night Owl service indicates significantly lower demand after midnight.
This is a temporary move due to COVID-19, and we hope to resume Night Owl’s full service in the Fall of 2021.
