The Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority has made significant changes to its operations in response to Coronavirus.
To combat the pandemic, the CCRTA has eliminated all safety classes and in-person interviews, and is advising staff to work remotely wherever possible to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
“Our senior staff is here doing everything they’re supposed to be doing and more,” said CCRTA Administrator Tom Cahir.
With the Cape’s high senior population, Cahir said that the CCRTA is in communication with senior centers to help residents get where they need to.
They have also been in contact with town municipalities to ensure that residents can still get to the services that they need, despite the pandemic.
Cahir said that the CCRTA facilities and equipment are getting cleaned and sanitized daily to help slow the spread of the virus and keep riders as safe as possible.
The CCRTA will be providing updates with timestamps to their website regularly for residents to check schedules, services, and alerts going forward.
