The RTC has implemented numerous precautions over the past several months, such as disinfecting vehicles nightly, requiring face coverings and more. The agency is now exploring additional measures to keep riders safe, including:
- Air ion cleaners to kill germs and viruses in the air while RTC vehicles are on the road
- Live, up-to-the-minute passenger counts so customers can review a vehicle’s current ridership data and make a personal decision about boarding or waiting for another vehicle
- Sanitation information displayed on each vehicle to inform riders of when the vehicle was last sanitized
- Micro-bacterial shields applied to seats and high-touch surfaces of each vehicle purchased moving forward.
These additional safety measures are still in the planning phase, but the RTC plans to implement most of these technologies by the end of 2020.
While the RTC is constantly evaluating several factors to determine when a normal service schedule should resume, the transit system is currently experiencing a severe drop in funding as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the loss in revenue, we have made system-wide service changes that took effect on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Changes include route eliminations, routing adjustments and schedule changes.

The RTC is committed to all of these efforts to ensure the safety of our customers and employees. CLICK OR TAP HERE for the latest information on all of our efforts related to COVID-19.
