The new schedule, which will be in effect until further notice, has the Hop operating from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily with cars arriving every 20 minutes.
This change comes as more and more people will be staying home and not using the car. With the lack of usage, a full schedule is not necessary.
The Hop has also increased the frequency of cleaning and is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation. They are asking that anyone who continues to the service to keep distance between themselves and other passengers.
Additionally, they ask that riders practice good hygiene and obey CDC recommendations.
