Local Motion is continuing to provide public transportation services during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. We are taking precautions to protect both Drivers and passengers to include providing hand sanitizer and requiring passengers to use it upon boarding, requiring sick passengers to wear a mask (provided by Local Motion as long as available), frequent disinfecting of surfaces on the bus, and eliminating fares to prevent contact. We will not be using minivans for transportation due to the close contact and lack of social distancing. We are requesting that passengers who are experiencing cough, runny nose, sore throat and fever stay at home. We will consider transportation of ill passengers on a case-by-case basis. Appropriate modifications to ensure safety will be considered. Local Motion will be limiting trips to life-saving medical appointments, essential shopping and work. We will only take individuals shopping one time per week. Please wait to schedule routine appointments, leisure outings and unnecessary travel. Our overriding concern is with the safety of passengers and Drivers. Please contact Lisa Firmender, Executive Director with any questions or concerns at (803) 541-1249.
