For Immediate Release

October 6, 2015

We want the community to know we’re anxious to get back on the road. We have been working closely with first responders and emergency preparedness and have assisted in moving evacuees. Many thousands of our citizens regularly depend on The Comet to provide their mobility needs and, today, many thousands more have been disrupted, displaced or lost their transportation options. However, safety must be our first priority.

Because of continuing road and bridge issues, we are coordinating with emergency management personnel, who are helping us determine when it’s safe to resume some form of regular service. The second we can be out there, we will.

And, when we resume service, it will be provided fare free for at least the first week. We want to be sure the Comet is doing everything it can to support our community during this historic time of need.
