The City of Missoula and its partners have offered an emergency solution during the arctic weather, opening the Mountain Line Transfer Center for evening shelter and providing extra post-schedule bus transportation to the Salvation Army for those wishing to overnight there. Thursday, Feb. 21, will be the last evening for that arrangement.
• The Poverello Center will offer low-barrier warming shelter, open to all those who have no other options, at its Center at 1110 W. Broadway from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
• People traveling to the Salvation Army for the night on weekdays via transit can take the last Mountain Line No. 2 bus of the evening, which leaves the transfer center at 8:45 p.m. and arrives shortly thereafter at Scott and Cooper streets approximately two blocks away from the Poverello Center. There is no regular bus service on this route on Saturday evening. The last No. 2 bus leaves the Transfer Center at 5:15 p.m. There is no bus service on Sundays.
• The Mountain Line Transit Center at Ryman and West Pine streets will no longer serve as a public warming shelter.
• The Salvation Army will open its nighttime shelter at 9:30 p.m.
