All four (4) normal fixed routes Red, Blue, Green and Yellow will run their regular schedules during the Eclipse event.
Effective August 5, 2017, you must dial the 10-digit telephone number (area code + the 7-digit telephone number). This means all calls in the 208 area code currently dialed with seven digits will need to be dialed using a 10-digit telephone number. The same dialing procedure will apply to telephone numbers assigned to the new 986 area code. If you do not use the new dialing procedures, your calls will not be completed and a recording will instruct you to hang up and dial again.
TRPTA’s public transportation system services the Idaho Falls, Rexburg, and Driggs areas with demand response (door-to-door) service. TRPTA also has a four (4) route system in Idaho Falls ONLY.
