Asheville, NC (FOX Carolina) - Beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, the ART bus will suspend service in Asheville due to multiple inches of show being predicted Saturday through Monday. 

Officials say the reason for the 2 p.m. closure is to allow the buses to come out of service before major road safety hazards occur. 

Transportation Assistant Director Jessica Morriss said:

“Our goal is always to keep our buses running and on schedule, but we need to balance that with ensuring the safety of our passengers and drivers, particularly in snow or icy road situations.” 

Once the roads are safe for the buses, officials say the service will resume as quickly as possible. 

The City of Asheville says riders can get up-to-date information about the ART by:
