New Cutaways added to Key West Public Transit Fleet
Cutaway Bus

You may have noticed the newest vehicle type in the Key West public transit fleet on the streets lately. 

They are called cutaways, are ADA compliant, and can transport 14 passengers. When ridership is typically lower, these vehicles are being integrated in the city bus routes. They are a bit quieter and easier to maneuver.

By using the cutaways along with the existing 30- and 35-foot buses, the City of Key West is trying to maximum transportation services to the riding public in the most safe, efficient, and environmentally conscious method possible.  

Buses may be delayed at times due to heavy seasonal traffic.

Citizens are reminded that masks are required to be worn at all times while on the bus, practice social distancing, and to follow all of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
