Ground transportation center

Davenport CitiBus and the Bettendorf Transit systems will be resume fare collection on Monday, August 3rd. Certain social distancing precautions will remain in place in an on-going effort to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Davenport Ground Transportation Center will not re-open earlier than Monday, September 7th. Reopening will happen when local cases of COVID-19 show a steady and sustained decline. Riders should continue to use the bus stops staged on 2nd St until further notice.

Davenport CitiBus will continue limiting the maximum number of passengers on a bus to one person per row per side. That is approximately 12 to 14 people on the bus at one time. If a bus passes you at a stop, it is because the maximum number of riders has been reached. You will need to wait for the next bus in this case.

We continue to encourage riders to wear cloth face masks or coverings. According to the CDC, using a mask or simple cloth face covering can help slow the spread of COVID-19. Any face protection is better than no protection at all.
 
CitiBus and Bettendorf Transit will continue monitoring conditions and adjust preventive measures as circumstances dictate.

CitiBus and Bettendorf Transit will continue monitoring conditions and adjust preventive measures as circumstances dictate. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us reduce the spread of COVID-19 by traveling only when needed and taking proper precautions, such as wearing a face covering.
