Temporary COVID-19 Hours until further notice as of March 24, 2020:

  • Monday-Wednesday (Non-Session) - 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM
  • Thursday (Non-Session) – 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM
  • Friday-Saturday (special) – 7:00 AM – 11:00 pm
  • Sunday-7:00 AM – 4:00 PM

At this time in Whitewater, the summer schedule (not-school year schedule) and the shortened the Friday night and Saturday night (now are temporarily closing at 11PM) schedule changed. These changes are likely to remain in effect until (a) bars reopen, and (b) University of Wisconsin Whitewater reopens. There will not be restrictions on trip by trip purpose, but are observing few requests that are not one of these three purposes: (a) medical appointment; (b) grocery/supply run; (c) job commutes. Instead of trying to multi-load customers, they are being spaced out to provide drivers with adequate time to sanitize the vehicle between each party. Disinfectants and sanitizing wipes are constantly being purchased and used as often as possible to keep up with the needs to keep the community safe.
