If school bus service is delayed in the morning, closes early, or is cancelled for the day, Greenway service may also be delayed, closed early, or cancelled if deemed appropriate to do so by Greenway. If inclement weather occurs when schools are not in session, Greenway will base its operating decision on general weather and road condition information.
