HOLIDAY SCHEDULE 

We wish you a safe and happy holiday season. Check out our holiday schedule on our website. Please email us if you will not require regularly scheduled service on a day that we plan on operating.  

 

DRIVER ALERT: HOLIDAY BREAK

Kids everywhere are rejoicing that school is out, but this raises a safety alert for drivers. It means that there are more kids playing in the streets during the day and later into the night. It also means that there are more inexperienced drivers on the roads during these same hours as teens take advantage of free time. Now is the time for drivers to be more vigilant and aware of their surroundings.

FUEL SURCHARGE REMAINS THE SAME IN DECEMBER 

Because there was no increase in fuel prices in the past month nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will remain at 10% in December. Our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region. 

How it’s calculated: If the national average price of regular unleaded fuel* is above $1.79 during the last week of any given month, the surcharge will be in effect on the first day of the following month.
