AppalCART, the public transportation authority for Boone and Watauga County, has announced the removal of 24 stops starting in August.
“As the start of the fall semester at App State approaches and cases of COVID-19 increase, AppalCART has identified the need to try and lessen the time passengers are spending on the buses in a confined area.” the company said in a statement on Friday.
“These changes should allow the buses to stop less frequently to keep air circulating on the bus. They will also assist in improving on-time performance.” the statement went on to say.
