SRTA said bus drivers have been provided hand sanitizer, germicidal wipes and spray to be used in driver and dispatch areas. And the agency said it’s increasing staffing and buying more supplies to expand deep-cleaning efforts.
Nearly 7,800 people a day board the Xpress bus system, which serves 13 metro Atlanta counties.
“The health of Georgia’s citizens, our workforce and workplace safety are top priorities for everyone so we’ve enhanced our cleaning regimen to ensure that our riders can continue to commute with confidence,” said SRTA Executive Director Chris Tomlinson.
SRTA is the latest transit agency to announce efforts designed to combat the coronavirus. Last week, MARTA announced its own enhanced cleaning efforts.
