This Veterans Day was the first paid Veterans Day holiday for Augusta employees, meaning a lot of city services were closed down.
One of those services that was shut down was the city bus service and there were riders still expecting to get on board at the transfer station.
Riders say a loss of service isn't a surprise when it comes to Augusta's bus system.
"The people who do work on Veterans Day don't get to get to their jobs. It's sort of the same thing every day with the Augusta Transit Department because what you have to worry about is can you get to your job when the bus runs," says Matt Moore.
The next two holidays with no bus service are Thanksgiving and the Friday after Thanksgiving.
