FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Allen County, Citilink announced it will cancel one of its annual traditions in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
Officials with Citilink say the public transit group for Fort Wayne will not be providing free fares on Saturdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.
"Citilink has provided Free Fare Saturdays during this time for many years in the past. However, to keep our passengers and our employees safe, we do not want to encourage overcrowding of buses," Citilink said.
Regularly scheduled Saturday service hours for Citilink buses will continue.
All Citilink passengers are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing on buses.
