Rider Protocols

If you are ill, still stay home. Your driver cannot offer a seat on the shuttle to anyone clearly displaying COVID-19 or other contagious disease symptoms.
Still wear a mask to protect those around you, per FTA/CDC mandate. You must wear a mask even if you feel healthy and even if you are vaccinated. (Read more about why here and here.)
Still make sure your mask fits properly. Your mask should fit snugly over the bridge of your nose and extend down under your chin, covering your mouth & nose completely.
Common mask mistakes include wearing your mask below your nose, hanging your mask around your neck, and wearing your mask too loosely.
Still do not eat or drink in waiting areas or on the shuttle. Eating or drinking would compromise your mask.
Do not approach the bus until the driver opens the door. Once the driver opens the door, approach the bus one at a time, and exercise patience to avoid crowding.
Still minimize conversation in waiting areas and on the shuttle. Talking less, talking more quietly, or not talking at all limit the production of the droplets & aerosols that spread the virus. (Read more about this here and here.)
Do not tamper with cracked windows. Some windows must remain cracked at all times for ventilation.

Additional rider policies & procedures are provided here, as well as on the second page of the printable schedule PDF found at the top of every schedule page. (If you’re on desktop, just click the printer icon.)
