Yolobus Schedule, Route Adjustments Due to Tower Bridge Closure

 

Starting Saturday, September 15th, and lasting until November 20th, the
Tower Bridge will be closed for a pedestrian and bikeway improvement
project.  Because YOLOBUS normally uses that bridge over 100 times a day,
most YOLOBUS routes from Davis to West Sacramento will be impacted.
Depending on the route, delays of 4-6 minutes can be expected.

Davis express bus  riders:  

All Davis/Sacramento express buses will utilize the Pioneer Bridge and the
5th Street exit in the Sacramento-bound direction, and 3rd Street to P
Street in the Davis-bound direction.  The bus stop on Capitol Mall by the
Embassy Suites will be discontinued during the bridge closure.

All Davis express buses could arrive in downtown Sacramento and in Davis 4-6
minutes later than normal.  

West Sacramento bus riders:

Routes 40, 41 (serving northern parts of West Sacramento, via Kegle):  They
will stay on West Capitol Avenue and will NOT do the 5th/F/3rd Street loop
(to go directly by Ziggurat); rather, they will turn right on 3rd, then work
their way down River Road and over to the eastbound Pioneer Bridge on ramp.
Conversely, they will do the opposite route on the return trip.  The
Ziggurat building is only 1 ½ blocks from the West Capitol/3rd Street bus
stop.  Some minor changes in departure times at the West Sacramento Transit
Center have been made in order to minimize negative effects from the Tower
Bridge closure.

The Ziggurat serving RT route 143 will access downtown Sacramento in the
same manner as routes 40 and 41, with the exception that the route 143 bus
will stop in front of the Ziggurat building.

Routes 42A, 42B (large loop routes serving Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento,
Sacramento International Airport,  and downtown Sac):  These two routes will
miss West Capitol Avenue from Merkley to 3rd Street.  Eastbound Route 42B in
West Sacramento will go straight from the Merkley Transit center to
Jefferson Boulevard, to the eastbound Pioneer Bridge on-ramp.  Westbound
Route 42A will do the opposite of it.  Arrivals in downtown Sacramento on
Route 42B  and in West Sacramento on Route 42B could be delayed by 4-6
minutes.

Route 240 (West Capitol, Harbor, IKEA, Wal-Mart, Stillwater route):  Like
routes 42A and 42B, this route will use the freeway on and off ramps at
Jefferson, meaning they will miss West Capitol Avenue from Merkley to 3rd
Street during the bridge closure (riders in that area will need to board the
40 or 41).  Some minor changes in departure times at the West Sacramento
Transit Center have been made in order to minimize negative effects from the
Tower Bridge closure.

Route 241 (peak hour West Capitol Avenue, Enterprise, Industrial Boulevard,
downtown Sacramento):  These commuter trips (two in the morning and two in
the afternoon) will use the freeway on and off ramps at Jefferson Boulevard.
Morning arrival times in West Sacramento and in downtown Sacramento will be
delayed by 4-6 minutes.

Route 35 (Southport, Westacre, Transit Center):  This schedule and route
will not change.
