Morro Bay Transit Will Begin Limiting the Number of Riders on the Bus Effective April 15, 2020
To continue supporting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance regarding social distancing to help slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Morro Bay Transit will begin limiting the number of passengers in the vehicle at one time.
Effective April 15, 2020, Morro Bay Transit will limit the number of passengers in the vehicle to no more than 4 riders at one time. This will allow the bus operator and passengers to continue practicing proper social distancing while providing lifeline transport services for those in need.
Morro Bay Transit thanks its passengers for doing their part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing to put space between themselves and others, as well as continuing to practice healthy habits like washing hands for at least 20 seconds, wearing face coverings while out in public, and staying home if feeling sick.
While we are operating our normal schedule, Morro Bay Transit will be monitoring transit services and make adjustments as necessary to continue providing basic lifeline services for the public and allow for services that will help promote social distancing and other individual risk minimization recommendations.
