Inclement Weather Information

There are several things to keep in mind when riding Lextran in inclement weather. You need to know how to find service updates, if your regular stops are on Snow Plan, and tips about navigating during snowy and icy weather.

Lextran tries to maintain a full service schedule during bad weather to provide as much consistency for passengers as possible. Lextran will begin notifying the public before the start of service at 5:30 a.m. or as soon as possible.

You can find weather related updates on, the myStop Mobile app and website, social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), and local news stations’ closings information (LEX18 and WKYT). Snow Plan updates will be provided as they occur with as much advanced notice as possible. Customer Service Staff are also available from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Snow Plan Information
If Lextran activates Snow Plan, you can find the information on each route in the route information’s “Snow” tab. You can also check your individual stop sign for a snowflake. Signs without snowflakes will not be served.

A list of all areas that are not serviced and the nearest stops can be found in the “Snow” tab. Below the list is a route map that shows which areas are served when Snow Plan is active. Areas marked by a solid line matching the route’s color will have service, areas that are marked by a red dotted line will not be serviced.

During the winter months it is important to dress warm and stay aware while waiting at your stop.

  • Dress in multiple warm, light layers.
  • Use gloves, hats, hoods, and scarves.
  • Never stand or wait in snow drifts or piles.
  • Walk like a penguin when navigating on icy surfaces.
  • Know before you go, check information about your stops and service before arriving at the bus stop to reduce your amount of time outside.
