During this pandemic we urge you to use transit only for your essential trips. Please note, it is a Federal requirement to wear a face covering on board a transit vehicle, including Pasadena Transit and Pasadena Dial-A-Ride. Face coverings are provided on board if you do not have one.
Pasadena Transit and Pasadena Dial-A-Ride are working closely with the City of Pasadena Health Department to monitor the COVID-19 situation, also known as Coronavirus, and we have implemented a number of measures on board our buses to help protect our customers and bus operators.
All Pasadena Transit and Pasadena Dial-A-Ride vehicles are cleaned thoroughly at least once daily. This means that every surface from floor to ceiling is disinfected. In addition, bus operators are cleaning high touch surfaces throughout the day.
Additional measures taken include:
- Limiting the number of passengers on the vehicle to help provide social distancing space (this is subject to change as conditions change)
- Blocking off select seats on our buses to encourage social distancing
- Hand sanitizers on all buses
- Driver barriers on all buses
The City of Pasadena has joined the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Health and Safety Commitments Program. The Program defines four core categories of responsibilities – for every partner transit agency and for their passengers – making this a true partnership for health and safety. They are:
- Following public health guidelines from official sources
- Protecting each other by requiring face coverings and other protection
- Keeping passengers informed and empowered to choose the safest times and routes to ride
- Putting health first by requiring riders and employees to avoid public transit if they have been exposed to COVID-19 or feel ill
