Capital Transit modifies downtown routing Dec. 18 & 19

December 13, 2019 – FYI

Capital Transit is planning to make temporary service changes to routes in Downtown Juneau due to the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities’ Egan Drive Improvements Project. Bus service changes will go into effect on Wednesday, December 18, and will remain through December 19, or until completion of the construction work.

During this time, bus service will follow the same modified routing in the downtown area that was used during the construction season this past summer. Please see the attached map for modified bus routing during this service change.

Changes to Capital Transit bus service:

  • Transfers will occur at the Senior Center on F Street, instead of the Federal Building and State Museum.
  • Outbound buses will leave the Federal Building 2 minutes earlier than normal to facilitate transfers at the Senior Center at 12th and F Street. For example, Routes 1, 3, 4, and 8 will leave the Federal Building at :13 minutes and :43 minutes after the hour, instead of :15 and :45.
  • Express Service (Routes 5 & 6) will follow the current routing through the downtown area, starting at the Senior Center on 12th Street and continuing on to Centennial Hall.
  • Inbound buses (Routes 1, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, and 16) will go directly to downtown from the Senior Center via 10th Street and Egan Drive. No inbound service to the Federal Building, Foodland IGA, and State Museum stops for these routes.
    • For inbound passengers trying to get to these stops, the options are:
      • Transfer to the Route 5 or Route 6 bus at the Senior Center stop on 12th
      • Transfer to an outbound Route 1, 3, or 4 at the Downtown Transit Center.
      • Wait times for these transfers are about 10-15 minutes for either option.
    • For passengers trying to get to downtown from these stops, they can take the outbound Valley bus (Route 3 or 4) to the Senior Center and transfer to an inbound bus going to downtown.
  • The bus stop at the State Museum on Whittier Street will be closed.
