Concord Coach Lines announced Sunday it has suspended its bus service along much of coastal Route 1.

A Concord spokeswoman  said March 22 that the suspension is for the foreseeable future. The action was taken because of the outbreak of COVID-19, the spokeswoman said.

The suspension means there will be no service in Searsport, Belfast, Lincolnville, Camden/Rockport, Rockland, Waldoboro, Damariscotta, Wiscasset, Bath and Brunswick.

Previously, there had been one southbound and one northbound bus each day along this coastal route.

Concord has operated along the Midcoast since 1993 when Greyhound discontinued that service.

Concord has also eliminated service into New York City during the outbreak and reduced overall runs to Boston.
