Greensboro Transit Authority makes every effort to maintain transit services during periods of inclement weather as this is the time our services are in high demand. Please be aware of the following:
Service Interruption Notices
If GTA and HEAT services are delayed or canceled, you can receive service notices in several ways.
- Website: A notice will be posted on ridegta.com and rideheat.com as well as the City of Greensboro's winter closings page.
- Media: Notices will be displayed on WFMY News 2 and WGHP Fox 8 television, as well as its website.
- Social Media: You can be the first to receive service updates by following us on Twitter @gtaheat.
- Transloc app: Download the free Transloc Rider app from the Apple or Android stores to receive service information along with real-time bus locations.
During severe weather service, GTA and HEAT will attempt to use normal routes if it is safe. Sometimes, we may alter service routes to avoid streets that may be impassable. These are what we refer to as snow routes. A full listing of our snow routes is available on the Routes page. Bus stop signs on the snow routes contain a snowflake image for easy identification. You can also call GTA Customer Service at 336-335-6499 to confirm active bus stops during winter weather.
The Public Transportation Division follows the City of Greensboro schedule for the establishment of office hours
during weather events. If the Public Transportation Division Offices at 223 W. Meadowview Rd. closes, many services such as bus pass sales will still be available at the J. Douglas Galyon Depot customer service office whenever buses are in service.
