Covid-19 Riding Guidance

For the safety of the entire Georgia Tech community during the Covid-19 pandemic, the following transit passenger guidelines are currently in place:

 

• Avoid riding if you have the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, or persistent vomiting or diarrhea.

• Upon bus arrival, queue for the bus using social distancing of 6 feet.  Also, avoid blocking the way of exiting passengers.

• Boarding/exiting will take place through the back door, when possible.

• Face masks should be worn by everyone while on board (unless you have a medical exception).  If you do not have a face mask to wear, please request one from the driver. 

• Continue to provide social distancing on board by following any marked-off seating guidelines.

• Standing is not allowed.

• If an open seat is not available, please wait and board the next bus.

• Limit contact with others.

 

Georgia Tech has increased measures to disinfect transit vehicles; done with guidance from the CDC and American Public Transportation Association.  Our drivers perform a health safety check daily and wear face masks/shields.  Bus are cleaned daily with an electrostatic sprayer, and high touch surfaces are cleaned again during shift change.  Please continue to follow the CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and the Georgia Tech community.
