Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, Intercity Transit is currently closed to the public. To adhere to the Governor’s Proclamation 20-28, the public may attend the May 20, 2020, Authority meeting by listening via telephone. Dial-in at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the meeting which begins at 5:30 p.m.
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.
Intercity Transit is closely monitoring developments with respect to COVID-19 (coronavirus). The safety of our customers and our employees is our top priority and we are following the professional guidance of our public health officials. Preventing future cases requires all of us to do our part.
Along with cleaning our buses nightly, we are researching additional cleaning protocols.
