Mass Transit Alerts
The Governor has asked citizens to use mass transit only for essential travel. E
ssential travel means taking trips to work, hospitals, health care providers, pharmacies, grocery stores, banks, food distribution centers, schools, to provide care for family members, and other similar destinations. By reducing unnecessary travel, transit becomes safer for those who depend on it, especially essential healthcare workers, and for those who operate it. If you use para-transit, please contact the customer service center to ensure rides.
