One of the ways that ATA tries to provide cost-effective public transportation is to operate deviated Fixed Routes.  These operate like fixed routes with fixed stops but unlike fixed routes, are allowed to deviate up to 1/4 mile. The bus may deviate only up to 1/4 mile and only when pre-determined by the Mobility Management Center.  The route's schedule is flexible enough to allow for these deviations while keeping to a time schedule. 

Flag Stops - All vehicles are subject to flag stops along this route. Times may vary due to traffic, road conditions and weather conditions.
