The number of positive coronavirus cases continues to rise in Maine and Cumberland County. The City of South Portland follows CDC guidance with regard to employees with cold or flu-like symptoms that mimic COVID-19, as well as COVID-19 quarantine and isolation requirements, in its policy of when an employee may not work . This strict and prudent policy ensures employees and the public we serve are as safe as possible but can result in daily driver shortages. To avoid last minute cancellations that could leave riders stranded, the City of South Portland Bus Service will once again operate on a reduced schedule.
