RFTA is now limiting capacity to 15 passengers on all buses.
Please practice social distancing on buses.

The maximum passenger load per bus that RFTA will attempt to maintain is approximately 15 passengers. RFTA has closed off seats to provide at least a six-foot distance between the driver and passengers.  RFTA is also implementing a seating plan that will provide adequate separation between passengers.  Bus operators will not board additional passengers after reaching the limited number, unless other passengers get off and open up available seats. If a bus is at capacity, it will only stop at requested stops for passengers to exit and may pass by stops that are not requested by passengers onboard. In those cases, an extra bus will be dispatched to pick up passengers at missed stops as quickly as possible. Likewise, if the number of people waiting to board at a particular stop will exceed these ridership limits, some passengers may be asked to wait at the stop for an extra backup bus to arrive. RFTA will strictly adhere to these seating restrictions in an effort to help passengers maintain adequate social distancing.

Please practice social distancing while at RFTA bus stops, stations and on the bus. RFTA will continue to post seat signage to block off at least half of the seats in all buses to enable social distancing while on the bus.
