Monday, some scheduled transit routes within the cities of Cambridge and Easton will be temporarily suspended.  Transportation will be provided, however on an individual basis to riders who call in and schedule their ride with the dispatcher in their area before 12 noon the previous day. 

“We are committed to ensuring citizens are still able to get to four essential destinations which are medical appointments, pharmacy, and grocery shopping and work” DCT Operations Manager Jerome Stanley said.
