CHT will adjust the EZ Rider service area to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandated three-quarters of a mile beyond operating fixed routes for all eligible customers.

EZ Rider Service 

 Service Adjustments

Weekday Service 

Reduce service to within 3/4 mi of weekday fixed route service

Saturday Service 

Reduce service to within 3/4 mi of Saturday fixed route service

Sunday Service 

Reduce service to within 3/4 mi of U/NU Routes (Sunday fixed route service) and implement a voucher program

 

Budget Background 

For the second year, CHT faces a budget shortfall of over a million dollars. CHT has to reduce its budget by $2.3 million, and has taken steps to close the shortfall, including utilizing reserve funds, implementing cost-savings initiatives, and making adjustments to fixed-route and EZ Rider services.

Criteria for Service Adjustments

To ensure CHT services represent the most cost-effective use of CHT’s resources, the service adjustments are based on low ridership (routes and individual trips), alternative service available nearby, least impact to riders, and available capacity on vehicles. 

Printed schedules will be available on buses approximately one week prior to the service change.
