A Note Regarding Concerns About The Advanced Reservation System

Operating a public transit system under the constraints of a pandemic and navigating the impacts has been a challenge. Currently, about 34% of our front-line staff are off work due to COVID-19-related issues. Thankfully, we have not had anyone on the job test positive. We know transit employees at other systems have tested positive. Sadly, many agencies have reported serious illnesses and deaths among their co-workers.
