Sioux Area Metro to Reduce Weekday Service Due to a Driver Shortage
Effective Monday, January 31, 2022, Sioux Area Metro will need to reduce service due to a continued shortage of drivers. Fixed Routes 3 and 10 will move back to hourly service on weekdays with some adjustment to schedules on fixed Routes 1, 4, and 5. Riders are encouraged to check the new transit route schedules for new ride times. The new schedules will be available starting at 12 noon on Saturday, January 29, at www.siouxfalls.org\sam and available at Downtown Bus Depot starting Monday, January 31.
Generally, buses will depart from the Downtown Depot every hour with service provided during normal operating hours. Route 11 will continue half-hour services from the Southwest Transfer Facility. Saturday service will remain at the same service level with SAM On Demand. The routes will resume the normal schedule once the driver shortage issues are resolved.
