The COMET was given clearance this afternoon to resume limited service on eight special routes. This service will be provided fare-free and will run until 8:00 P.M. this evening. This limited service will then resume at 6:30 A.M. on Thursday, October 8.

After consultation with emergency management, law enforcement and other officials, The COMET will use smaller vehicles to limit the weight on the road and maximize safety.

“We’ve been anxious to get back on the road to support our community in this time of need,” said Brian DeQuincey Newman, chairman of The COMET board of directors. “We have been working closely with first responders and emergency preparedness, and since they have given us the all-clear, we have begun limited service immediately. This service will be fare-free as we move through this crisis. We will continue to add back regular service as soon as possible.”
