Lackawanna County’s public bus service will return to a full Monday through Saturday service beginning Monday.
The County of Lackawanna Transit System suspended Saturday runs as of Feb. 6 because of a shortage of drivers caused by COVID-19 and a struggle to replace retired drivers.
The customer service desk will also reopen on Monday, the transportation service posted on Twitter. Regular Saturday service will resume on March 20.
