City of Asheville government will be closed Friday, April 10, as part of its spring break holiday. City facilities remain closed to the public at this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this public health emergency, City employees have continued their work, some in the field, such as in sanitation, water, transit, fire and police, while others, such as in finance, human resources and community development, have worked remotely.


City of Asheville ART bus service routes and facilities will operate on a reduced holiday schedule April 10 as well. This is one of six holidays throughout the calendar year that ART runs on a holiday bus schedule. The holiday schedule is the same as a Sunday schedule the bus routes follow.
