Frequently Asked Question
Your health and safety, as well as that of our employees, is our top priority. In an effort to keep everyone healthy and safe METRO has reduced the capacity on our buses, seats have been marked off to allow for physical distancing, all passengers and staff are required to wear face coverings. We have completed installation of clear curtain protective barriers for the operator compartment and have started to install clear sneeze barriers between rows of seating on all fixed-route buses to mitigate the risk of passing the virus. Additionally, to assist with physical distancing we’ve added ground markers at transit centers denoting where to stand while lining up for a bus. We have also hired additional cleaning staff and stationed them at all transit centers to clean high-touch surfaces on each bus that goes through the center. We have added hand-washing stations to our Santa Cruz, Watsonville, and Scotts Valley Transit Centers and are in the process of installing hand sanitizer dispensers on all buses. In addition, buses are fogged with disinfectant every night.
