Bus Service To Be Temporarily Reduced During Driver Shortage

Effective Monday, August 16, 2021, Sioux Area Metro will temporarily reduce service due to a shortage of drivers.

All fixed routes will move to hourly service on weekdays:

  • Routes 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 19 will start at 5:45 a.m.
  • Routes 2, 5, 8, 9, and 10 will start at 6:15 a.m. from the Downtown Bus Depot.
  • Route 11 will remain at its normal start time of 6:15 a.m.
  • Night service will remain the same.

Buses will depart from the Downtown Bus Depot every hour with service provided until 8:45 p.m. on weekdays. Route 11 will continue half-hour services from the Southwest Transfer Facility. An updated bus schedule is available on siouxfalls.org/sam.

Saturday bus times remain unaffected during the SAM On Demand Service. Sioux Area Metro will resume the normal bus schedule once the driver shortage is resolved.
