What WE are Doing to Keep You Safe
Transit Drivers are wearing face masks and buses are equipped with protective barriers for the driver to limit exposure.
Frequently touched surfaces at the transit center and on the buses are being wiped down with disinfectant throughout the day.
We are applying a Microbe Shield disinfectant to high-touch areas, as well as using fogging applications each night.
We’re no longer limiting how many riders are allowed on buses. No seats are closed and social distancing is no longer required. This comes as Oregon lifted social distancing requirements on transit on 6/30/21.
Our operators play a vital role in keeping our community moving during this unprecedented time in history. To support their health and safety and yours, and out of abundance of caution, we have decided to stop accepting fares on board buses.
This is a temporary measure to help with social distancing and to minimize the time riders spend near our bus operators.
What YOU Can Do
You are required to wear a face covering when riding Yamhill County Transit.
Masks are still required until September 13, 2021 as directed by the FTA/TSA.
“Face covering” means a cloth, polypropylene, paper or other face covering that covers the nose and the mouth and that rests snugly above the nose, below the mouth, and on the sides of the face.”
As of 10/19/20 face shields are not recommended as a substitute for face coverings except in very limited situations.
Practice “social distancing” keeping at least six feet between you and other people, including our operators and employees.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw that tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your elbow (and not your hands).
The Oregon Department of Transportation Rail and Public Transit Division has an informative Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) website that provides valuable information for transit riders and stakeholders regarding COVID-19 as it relates to public transportation in Oregon.
