Pullman declares a Public Transportation State of Emergency in preparation for extra routes

The City of Pullman has declared a Public Transportation State of Emergency in preparation for the extra routes needed to accommodate record breaking visitors to WSU for ESPN College Gameday.

The City says the declaration is required to comply with Federal Transit Administration codes. Five additional routes will be offered Friday and four additional routes will be added Saturday.

On Friday, one extra bus on each of the Fixed Routes (Loop, Paradise and Silver) will run from 2:20 p.m.- 6:45 p.m. There will also be an extra bus on the Wheat and Lentil routes from 7:35 p.m.- Midnight.

Saturday, two shuttle buses will run from Lot 3 (Terre View and Highway 270), to the Bulstad Hall stop on Stadium Way near Martin Stadium for riders wanting to get to the ESPN show. Those buses will run from 5:00 a.m.- 1:25 p.m. After the College Gameday Show, three shuttle buses will stage at Bailey Brayton Field and take riders back to Apartment Land, Brandi Way, Emerald Downs, Providence Ct and then travel back to Bailey Brayton for more riders. One extra bus on the Wheat and Lentil Routes will run from 9:35 a.m.- 1:30 p.m.

Along with the regular Football Service that starts at 1:30 p.m., Pullman Transit will be ready to add any additional service that may be necessary to accommodate passenger loads.
