Starting Saturday, April 4th, STARS will be suspending remaining Saturday LIFT and EXPRESS dial-a-ride services until further notice. STARS Dial-a-Ride services still are available for necessary trips only on Monday-Friday from 5:55am to 8:55pm. STARS Rides to Wellness services remain unchanged.
STARS Saturday dialysis riders can continue to schedule trips as normal. Those riders will be accommodated through the STARS Rides to Wellness program.
“STARS is watching ridership trends closely and making sure that we offer service only when it’s needed – and trying to react quickly. The cuts STARS has made will continue to serve the health of our drivers and staff as well as the public. Every hour that I can keep a worker home safe while still providing essential service is a victory right now. Bus drivers are on the front line right now, too, and we all should take that very seriously,” said STARS Executive Director Glenn Steffens.
Riders can call 989-753-9526 to schedule only necessary trips (medical needs, essential jobs, groceries, pharmacies).
