Village Loop Route 11 Seasonal


Service Alert: Village Loop Route 11 – Glen Arbor service will be temporarily modified starting Monday, Feb. 17, 2020. Village Loop Route 11 will become a seasonal offering due to low ridership in the off-season (November – April) and will return to its normal schedule providing multiple trips per day on Saturday, May 16 when ridership demand traditionally increases.
