MARTA said it began requiring non-essential employees to telework earlier this month. It says it’s conducting all meetings by phone and has prohibited any gathering of more than 10 people.
Among other things, it also has dispensed hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes that employees can use to clean their work areas.
On Thursday MARTA will begin boarding most passengers only from the rear door of buses to separate passengers from bus drivers. Because farebox equipment is at the front door, the agency will suspend fare payments on buses.
It also will close public restrooms at some stations beginning Thursday.
