Palm Springs bus service to make a comeback

By on January 4, 2019

Six months after it went away, the BUZZ is back in Palm Springs.

The popular bus service is scheduled to return to its original route beginning Jan. 10, according to its new operator, the regional Sunline Transit Agency.

Buses will run from noon to 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, every 20 minutes.

“The entire team at SunLine is looking forward to bringing the BUZZ back,” said Lauren Skiver, Sunline Transit’s chief executive officer and general manager, in a statement. 

“What’s especially exciting about SunLine operating the BUZZ service is that it will align with SunLine’s fixed route service, providing valley-wide transit options for both visitors and residents.”

A ribbon cutting and re-launch celebration will be held at noon Jan. 10 at Museum Way and South Palm Canyon Drive. City and regional officials will take an inaugural ride on the BUZZ bus, according to the statement.

BUZZ is paid for by Palm Springs. For more information visit www.sunline.org.
