During evacuation, all Coast RTA rides end at officially designated emergency shelters. Once cleared for re-entry, return trips will only stop at the hurricane shelter evacuation designated pickup points.
When using Coast RTA for transportation to the local shelters, look for the temporary blue and white hurricane evacuation bus stop signs to designate the pick-up location. This is a free service provided by Coast RTA as the transportation partner during emergency preparedness efforts.
Coast RTA asks passengers using its evacuation services to limit belongings/bedding/luggage to one bag per person.
