Big Blue Bus is continuing to provide service with schedule modifications across most routes that serve our community.
On Friday, March 20, the following procedures were implemented on board, to protect the safety and well-being of our operators and customers:
- Rear-door boarding: Customers must board and exit through the rear door only, except those with a mobility device, stroller, or accessibility need.
- Fares no longer enforced: We are no longer enforcing collection of cash and pre-paid fares (i.e. TAP, paper passes, and mobile tickets).
- Do not approach operators: In an effort to follow WHO, CDC, and LA Public Health guidelines for social distancing, we are working to ensure our operators and customers can maintain a safe distance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This measure allows us to keep our service running during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Big Blue Bus has implemented additional daily cleaning and sanitizing efforts on board our buses and on MODE wheelchair accessible vehicles, and are utilizing hospital grade solutions to sanitize high touch areas on board all of our vehicles. We are continually evaluating our cleaning procedures to ensure they match what the situation requires in alignment with the CDC and Public Health guidance.
It is important to keep in mind that surfaces are only clean until someone touches them or coughs/sneezes nearby. This means we need your help to prevent the spread of any virus this flu season.
