Service Advisory – Temporary Trip Cancellations Due to Staff Shortages

Scheduled cancellations will be posted weekly. However, check back often as circumstances may change daily.

Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) is working hard to respond to the community’s request for GCTD to increase service levels.  Like many other transit agencies across the country, GCTD is struggling to increase staffing levels back up to pre-pandemic service levels.  However, due to staff shortages, some trips may be cancelled or cut short.  These temporary trip cancellations will be posted in advance at here and can also be viewed on the GOVCbus mobile app. Scheduled cancellations will be posted weekly on the Service Alerts page, and unplanned trips will be posted as soon as that information is received. Our Customer Service Center staff, open Monday-Friday from 8am-6pm, is available to assist you with trip planning and answer your questions.

We encourage riders to check back daily while we work to get as much service restored as possible.
