We strongly encourage all passengers to comply with this Executive Order while riding on our buses.

In an effort to increase social distancing on our transit services, Centro is requiring all customers to board and exit buses through the rear doors on vehicles that have rear doors. Customers using a mobility device, or who are in need of having the bus lowered may use the front door. Additionally, seating areas normally given priority for individuals using mobility devices will now be exclusively reserved for persons with mobility devices only.

Also, Centro will increase the use of double door buses on our intercity services connecting between Auburn and Syracuse, and Oswego and Syracuse.

Due to the current events surrounding COVID-19, Centro's Call-A-Bus Department has implemented changes to its service in order to provide the safest rides possible for all of its Call-A-Bus customers. Click here to read the changes.
