COVID-19 protocols

Safety: Our top priority continues to be, as it has always been, for customers to have a safe and healthy riding experience. Our COVID-19 safety protocols include:

  • Face coverings are required for all passengers and drivers.
  • Daily COVID-19 symptom screening of employees before entering the workplace. Employees are required to stay home if they have COVID-19 symptoms or have been instructed to quarantine or isolate.

  • Full daily cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces (hand rails and hand holds, arm rests, etc.) before and after each shift.
  • Hand sanitizing supplies provided for passengers and drivers. 

We encourage all our valued customers to follow these best practices:

  1. Get vaccinated.
  2. Stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms or if you have been instructed to isolate or quarantine by a public health professional.
  3. Wear a face covering while inside and boarding/disembarking from the shuttle.
  4. Maintain distance from other passengers when possible.

  5. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after riding.
