Due to ongoing low ridership and performance issues, Saturday service on Route 209 will be eliminated. The last Saturday served will be June 8, 2019.
Pace based its decision to eliminate Saturday service on this route on an extensive review of ridership, efficiency, and productivity on all routes across the region. Comments on proposed eliminations were accepted at a series of public hearings in October 2018.
