Flex Routes

A Flex Route, also known as a deviated route, is like a fixed route as it keeps to a regular hourly schedule, but the bus can deviate from the route to pick up or drop off passengers from other locations along the way, when prearranged through dispatch. Once a passenger is picked up from the "FLEXED" location the vehicle will return to its regular route and continue on from the place it left, or deviated from the route. Flexes are arranged time permitting, and may not be available if a driver is already running behind schedule. A vehicle can FLEX up to two blocks away from its route.
