Kalamazoo limits bus service after drivers test positive for COVID

Kalamazoo Metro Transit has had to cut back on bus routes because there just aren't enough drivers.

Two drivers have tested positive for COVID-19 at Kalamazoo Metro Transit (KMT). That’s taken those two drivers out of commission for at least ten days and prompted the transportation service to reduce bus routes.

Executive Director Sean McBride told MLive they don’t have the staff to support the number of routes they usually run.

The system has cut the #12-Duke route entirely, and reduced service to six other routes. Changes went into effect October 7.

“It’s a fluid situation with staffing, so monitor our Facebook and website and MyStop app,” said McBride.
