We want to reassure the public that RFTA is actively tracking the spread of COVID-19 and coordinating with Public Health officials and local, state and federal authorities on a regular basis.

At this time, transit service continues to operate at a reduced level of service for those in need of its essential service. RFTA will continue to follow Public Health guidance (as we encourage everyone else to do) as this event evolves to ensure we are following the proper precautions in keeping our workforce and customers safe.

RFTA is undertaking practical measures to keep our buses and facilities sanitized and safe. Every day, we’re fogging buses, cleaning & sanitizing stops, stations, facilities, work spaces and offices. All buses used in service are disinfected at least every 24 hours.

RFTA and its partners appreciate the community’s patience during this challenging time. In the event RFTA does have to alter scheduled service further due to COVID-19, we will try and provide as much notification to the public as possible.  We encourage our passengers to check RFTA’s social media and web page frequently for service updates.
