After a year-long hiatus, Capital Transit buses are once again driving through downtown.
Due to construction at the Alaska State Capitol and on South Franklin Street, buses stayed away from downtown. Now, they’re running once again on Franklin Street, Fourth Street and Main Street. The region is also known as Capital Transit’s Ride Free Zone, which helps those with mobility issues get to locations that are far uphill of downtown, including the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, the Dimond Courthouse and the downtown hostel.
The Ride Free Zone comprises four stops: one at the Marine Parking Garage, one on Franklin Street near the old Gunakadeit Park, one on Fourth Street near Rainbow Foods and one at the Downtown Transit Center.
