RFTA has earned the Health & Safety Commitment Seal FROM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION
RFTA has earned the Health & Safety Commitment (HSC) seal. It means we are fulfilling the highest industry commitments for keeping public transportation safe during COVID-19.
To reassure our community, RFTA is working every day to keep our riders and employees safe. But we can’t do it without you, our riders. For every action we take, we ask riders to share the responsibility for their own actions. For example, we commit to cleaning and disinfecting our buses every day, and we ask you, our riders, to commit to wearing face coverings when riding RFTA Buses and waiting in line to Board at bus stops, and to not use RFTA services if you’re experiencing respiratory illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath or other COVID-19 symptoms as described by the CDC).
RFTA’s current commitments include:
- Following public health guidelines from the CDC, Colorado State and Local Health Departments
- Requiring face coverings onboard buses at all times, handing out masks/face coverings onboard when passengers do not have them
- Keeping and maintaining hand sanitizer dispensers on buses
- Cleaning and disinfecting (fogging) buses 1-2 times a day
- Cleaning and disinfecting bus stops, transit facilities and administrative offices frequently
- Keeping RFTA passengers informed and empowered to choose the safest times and routes to ride
- Putting health first by requiring riders and employees to avoid public transit if they have been exposed to COVID-19 or feel ill
We’ve met these commitments and earned the HSC seal by adopting practices and policies that make sense for our system, riders and community. Our practices meet the transit industry’s recommended practices and our local safety needs.
Thank you to our riders and employees for all taking part in this commitment to keep each other safe.
