Jefferson Transit, COVID-19 Monitoring- Limiting the Spread of Coronavirus

Jefferson Transit is taking steps to limit the spread of coronavirus through its operations. Jefferson Transit fixed-route vehicles are disinfected nightly with a decontaminate fogger.  All other passenger vehicles are disinfected by hand as they return from service with an antiviral solution that kills coronavirus.  For more information on the disinfectant used visit: https://benefect.com/ca/products/decon-30/

Jefferson Transit has supplied its front-line staff with gloves and sanitizer wipes to reduce their risk of infection from germs. Hand sanitizer stations are available to passengers in the Fixed Route and Dial-A-Ride buses. Passengers are required to wear a mask at all times while aboard JTA vehicles.

Jefferson Transit has installed Plexiglas barriers to reduce the contact between the Bus operators and riders. Passengers who do not require the use of a lift or ramp should use the rear door on the fixed route vehicles to board or debark from the bus.

Posters on How to Stop the Spread of Germs are posted on buses.

Jefferson Transit continues to monitor the alerts from the Jefferson County Public Health and encourages our customers to follow the directions of public health officials.

We encourage our customers to follow the directions of public health officials including frequent hand washing, covering your cough and sneezes and avoiding touching your face. We ask that all riders take the advice of health authorities to stay home and avoid public places if you or someone you live with are sick, especially if there are symptoms such as a fever, cough, or other respiratory symptoms.

Our top priority is to help support the public and our employees in staying healthy and safe. Thank you for partnering with us to help prevent the spread of illness.
