Public Notice: Masking Requirements

February 5th, 2021 by mnash

In accordance with Security Directive 1582/84-21-01 anyone over the age of two (2) must wear a mask that
covers the mouth and nose while riding Jefferson Transit buses or utilizing our facilities.

The following exemptions may apply:

  • While communicating with a person who is deaf or hard of hearing, when the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
  • Individuals who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons. This directive clarifies that this exemption is extremely rare, and the inability
    to wear a mask because it is difficult is not an acceptable exemption. The individual must have a condition which makes it dangerous
    to wear a mask. (Under this directive individuals may be required to provide evidence including third party medical consultation,
    medical documentation, and/or evidence that the person does not have COVID-19 such as a negative result from a SAR-CoV-2 viral
    test or recovery documentation, when requesting an exemption to wear a mask.)
  • When necessary to temporarily remove the mask for identity verification purposes.

Rider Alert: Limiting the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

November 19th, 2020 by Lisa Bradley

Rider Alert: Return to regular service schedule- Nov. 2, 2020

October 27th, 2020 by mnash

On March 30, 2020 with the outbreak of the Coronavirus Jefferson Transit began operating at a reduced level of service to protect public health. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things but one thing that remains the same is our commitment to safely get you where you need to go.  We have taken steps to protect our employees and riders and anticipate resuming full service on Monday, November 2, 2020.

Routes will operate Monday through Saturday using the Jefferson Transit Bus Schedule dated May 20, 2019 with the following exceptions.

  • Until further notice the #1 Brinnon route will end at the Black Point Turnaround; service to Triton Cove will resume when connecting service to Mason Transit becomes available.
  • Jefferson Transit’s Olympic Connection will remain on reduced service. Please continue to monitor our website for updates.

While returning to full service increases the number of trips per day please be aware boarding the bus will be on a first come first served basis; space limitations for soc

ial distancing limit the number of riders per bus and may require you wait for the next available bus or find alternate transportation.  We understand this is not an ideal situation, regrettably Jefferson Transit does not have the staffing and fleet resources to send vehicles to pick up overflow passengers.

  • Fare Free service remains in effect until further notice.  
  •  Haines Place and Four Corners customer service offices will remain closed.

As we work together through this difficult time we rely on our riders to protect themselves and one another. We ask that riders continue to follow Public Health masking directives, follow social distancing guidelines and use transit for essential travel activities allowed under Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Thank you for doing your part to support transit as an essential service.
