COVID-19 Response

While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things, CATbus will remain committed to ensuring our patrons get where they need to go. 
CATbus will take health and well-being of our customers and our employees seriously, so the following is what you can expect when you are riding a CATbus.

Essential Travel  

Essential Travel

Due to the limited capacity on the buses, Passengers should practice good hygiene (washing hands frequently, using hand sanitizer, coughing into their elbows) and stay at home if they’re experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

 

Social Distancing  

Social Distancing

The CATbus will limit passengers to 50% of occupancy on our fixed route buses to allow social distancing among passengers. It’s also important for passengers to maintain as much distance from the bus driver as possible. Please do not stand in front of the yellow caution tape. If you need ADA assistance, you may sit and enter through the front door, but all other patrons will enter through the rear door on all routes. When boarding, please stand six feet apart when waiting at a bus stop or inside the transit shelter.

 

Masks Required  
 

Masks Required

Passengers are required to wear a disposable mask, cloth mask, scarf or bandana to cover their nose and mouth. Free masks are available for patrons to pick up at the rear exit door.Drivers have been provided with masks and a protective barrier between their compartment and the customer zones. Drivers must either use the barrier, wear a face mask, or wear a driver shield at all times.

 

 

Cleaning/Disinfecting  

Cleaning and Disinfecting

CATbus will strive to ensure that all buses are clean for all patrons. During these times we will be disinfecting all buses after the last shift of the evening. These will be sprayed with a spray sanitizer to ensure all buses are clean for the morning run. During the day each driver is provided with spray and wipes to wipe their buses down and spray their buses after one run.  Each time they go to the recovery time they are to sanitize their bus before starting up for the next trip. This will be done by spraying or wiping high touch areas, driver area and the seating areas of each bus. Buses are equipped with hand sanitizer and masks for patrons to use entering and exiting the bus.
