While Montana Governor Gianforte has lifted the statewide mask mandate as of Friday, February 12, Federal regulations still require all users of public transportation services to wear a mask while boarding and riding transit services.

Therefore, Skyline will continue to require that all customers continue to wear a mask while boarding and riding its buses. For those wanting more information about the Executive Order (Federal requirement), go to https://www.federalregister.gov/executive-order/13998

A Note About Bikes on the Bus

Most buses have the ability to carry 6 to 8 bikes, some up to 10.

Racks are on a first-come, first-served basis. Riders with bikes should not expect that they will be able to get their
bike on the bus at all times during the day. Groups of riders should especially be aware of this situation.

The racks are easy to use and are designed for riders to load bikes independently. Assistance is available if needed.
