We’re committed to keep Southern Nevada healthy and moving. That’s why we’ve joined the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Health & Safety Commitments program. It’s the public transportation industry’s overarching pledge to riders that transit agencies are taking all the necessary measures to operate safely as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

APTA’s national program shows riders exactly what transit agencies are doing to help keep transit as safe as possible and slow the spread of COVID-19.  Under the partnership, we’re expected to commit to:

  • Following official guidance on safe riding practices from health experts and agencies.
  • Protecting riders through cleaning, disinfecting, and providing room for social distancing.
  • The use of face coverings by employees and riders.
  • Sharing information that will empower riders to make informed choices.

Ensuring transit workers and passengers are healthy.

This is our promise to you – our riders. Our 14-point plan details our work to provide a clean and safe ride to your destination.
