STARS Temporarily Suspends Rides to Wellness Services Due to COVID

Effective Thursday, April 14,  Saginaw’s bus system,  STARS, is temporarily suspending Rides to Wellness services due a COVID-19 outbreak among staff. The services will reopen on Thursday, April 29th. Mainline City bus routes and LIFT services will continue as scheduled, although those services are running on limited hours due to the pandemic.

“We had a sudden surge of Covid among staff in one of our departments, so in the interest of public safety, I’ve decided to hit ‘pause’ in that department,” said Executive Director Glenn Steffens.

Rides to Wellness Passengers are not believed to be at risk of exposure, but STARS is directly reaching out to any passengers who may have ridden with affected drivers. You can find the latest service information for STARS on their website:
