Why is service limited?

We are still experiencing reduced numbers of drivers who are consistently available to drive primarily due to COVID-19 related issues. This reduced level of service is what we can support at this time. We look forward to resuming our regular service levels and continue to work in that direction as more of our drivers return to work.

Keeping yourself, others and our drivers healthy:

  • Federal and state polices require wearing a face mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times while riding public transit and while waiting at a bus stop, shelter or transit center. Failure to do so is subject to civil penalty. If you forget your mask, we'll provide one for you. 
  • Please do not travel on Intercity Transit if you are sick or experiencing COVID-like symptoms. Anyone being tested for COVID-19 or who was in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should not travel. It is important for anyone in this situation to quarantine as directed by their doctor and public health officials.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently.
  • Cover your sneezes and coughs.
  • Maintain as much distance as possible between you and other passengers while on board, at bus stops and at shelters.
  • Limit your time on board. Have a destination when you board the bus and disembark when you get there. Continuous riding will not be allowed.
  • Board buses using the rear door, unless you need the ramp, kneeler, or have a child in a stroller. If you need to enter at the front of the bus, please wait at the front door and tell the driver.

Our ability to provide bus, Dial-A-Lift and Advanced Reservation Service depends on keeping our drivers healthy. Please work with us to ensure that we can continue to serve you. 

Changes we're making for everyone's safety:

  • We've enhanced our cleaning processes to include the daily use of electrostatic sprayers and hospital-grade disinfectants.
  • We're wiping down high touch areas of vehicles during the day.  
  • We've installed Plexiglas barriers at the front of the bus to help safeguard our drivers.
  • We've installed touchless hand sanitizer dispensers on our vehicles.
  • We're providing masks for passengers who need them. 
  • We're marking off rows of seats to promote social distancing.
