Break Days & Holidays (2020/2021)

CyRide does not operate on five holidays throughout the year including:

  • Thanksgiving - Thursday, November 26, 2020
  • Christmas Day - Friday, December 25, 2020
  • New Years Day - Friday, Jan 1, 2021
  • Memorial Day - Monday, May 31, 2021
  • Independence Day - Sunday, July 4, 2021

Please note, CyRide is operating a full weekday schedule on the Labor Day holiday on September 7, 2020 due to in-person classes being held at Iowa State University.  CyRide does not typically operate service this day.

Additionally, CyRide operates a Break schedule on and around holidays and times that ISU does not have classes.  Sometimes CyRide runs a Weekday Break schedule, and sometimes a Saturday or Sunday Break schedule. It is extremely important to note what type of Break schedule or service is operated since that indicates which schedule to reference in looking up the time your bus will arrive at your particular stop. 

What does a Break Schedule mean to you? A Break schedule indicates that CyRide buses only operate the times or lines within the schedule timetables that are NOT SHADED. Additionally, some entire routes do not operate when I S U is on break. Due to COVID-19, Iowa State is not having in-person classes between November 26th and January 11, 2021.  As a result, a break schedule will be operated this entire time period. 

Therefore, Break Schedule means shaded trips on the schedule timetable DO NOT OPERATE whether designated a Weekday, Saturday or Sunday Break Schedule.

  • STEP #1 = Note which schedule CyRide is operating (Weekday, Saturday or Sunday) by looking at the schedule below. Just because it is Monday - Friday, does not mean CyRide is operating a weekday break schedule! 
  • STEP #2 = Ignore the shaded trips on the schedule you're referencing for a Break Schedule as those buses do not operate. (Some shaded trips are different for daytime versus evening with different days noted)
