SAFETY INITIATIVES REGARDING COVID-19

Safety is METRO's number one priority. As such, METRO is working diligently to ensure the safety and well-being of its passengers and team members in light of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

METRO is working closely with numerous organizations to ensure we are taking the proper steps to prevent the spread of germs.

We have switched to stronger cleaning solvents. Our Vehicle Services team members are visiting the Transit Center throughout the day to clean and disinfect bus interiors, focusing on stanchions, handrails, and fareboxes. In addition to the daily cleaning of our fleet, Vehicle Services is also performing extra scrubs on buses.
