St. Lawrence County Public Transit (slcnypublictransit.com), operated by The Arc Jefferson - St. Lawrence, will continue to waive fares on all routes until August 1st.  On this date, travel for runs will return to the low fee of $2 each way. Face coverings or shields must be used on Public Transit buses. These measures remain in place as a continued effort to support the health and safety of passengers and drivers. In observance of Independence Day, SLC Public Transit will be closed on July 3, 2020.

Per Department of Health guidance, SLC Public Transit has now opened fully and riders may access the bus for any travel purposes. Deep cleaning occurs on the vehicles daily and between shifts. Seats will continue to be limited and spaced out.

Anyone using Public Transit must wear a face covering or shield at all times and have it placed over their nose and mouth prior to entering the bus. People with health conditions unable to wear a mask are required to wear a face shield. Face shields are available on Public Transit or through St. Lawrence County’s Emergency Management Office: 315-379-2240.
