ELKHART, IN – The Interurban Trolley fixed route service and the Interurban Trolley ADA Access service will operate as normal in Elkhart and Goshen during the Independence Day holiday weekend. 

The ADA Access Dispatch office will be closed on Monday, July 5. ADA Access riders should schedule transportation for Tuesday, July 6, on Friday, July 2, 2021, by 4:00 PM. 

The Interurban Trolley information office will be closed on Friday, July 2 and Monday, July 5. 

The Interurban Trolley still requires facemasks to be properly worn by all passengers and transit operators over their nose and mouth while aboard the Interurban Trolley or ADA Access Van. The only exemptions to this are children under the age of two (2), and those with medical exemptions in possession of a signed doctor’s note. These masks requirements are because the Interurban Trolley, as a public transit operator, is subject to the Federal mask requirements from the Center for Disease Control and the Transportation Security Administration that implement Executive Order 13998. Passengers who do not comply with this mask mandate while riding the Interurban Trolley are subject to civil penalties (including fines starting at $250) from the Transportation Security Administration. Wearing masks will protect transit operators and passengers while helping to control the transmission of COVID-19. These requirements are currently scheduled to remain in effect until September 13, 2021. 

Transit information can be obtained by calling the Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) at 574-674-8894 or at www.interurbantrolley.com
