UPDATE;

Citing COVID-19 concerns, Phoenix will limit passengers on city buses

Phoenix will begin limiting the number of passengers on city buses as part of its effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus. 

The City Council voted unanimously Monday to cap the number of passengers allowed on buses. A typical 40-foot bus will be capped at 10 passengers. Smaller circulator buses will have a five-passenger limit and 60-foot buses will allow 15 passengers. 

Since the city's declaration of emergency in mid-March, ridership of local buses, rapid/express buses, light rail and dial-a-ride has declined between 45% to 65%.

The decision to limit passengers came after the bus drivers union requested such a cap. Two bus drivers in metro Phoenix have contracted COVID-19, according to city staff.

Public transportation is considered essential and therefore must remain open, per Gov. Doug Ducey's executive orders. 

Phoenix Deputy City Manager Mario Paniagua told the council that the transit system today is serving "the ones most in need of transportation" — many of whom are essential workers like grocery store employees, construction workers and health care employees. 

In addition to the new cap, the city has implemented other disease prevention strategies and plans to add more in the coming days.

UPDATE;

103 Metro bus routes now canceled; dozens more reduce service amid COVID-19 outbreak

-- Metro is further reducing its number of bus trips and other transit services Monday as ridership continues to drop amid the coronavirus outbreak and stay-at-home order.

There are 103 bus routes that have been completely cut, while 81 bus routes now having fewer trips or reduced hours of operations, the agency announced Monday.

Just 34 bus routes have maintained all or nearly full service on its routes.

In addition, Link light rail now only has trains running every 20 minutes and the West Seattle Water Taxi is running on a reduced schedule of just six round trip sailings.

The Seattle Streetcar already canceled service along its South Lake Union routes on March 23 and will maintain the reduced service schedule along First Hill that went into effect on the same date.

Access paratransit shuttles will continue normal operations.

our passenger limit changed last Friday to 10 passengers on a 40 foot bus unless, there were couples or parents with children riding in which the amount was upped to 15/
 

So far all bus routes remain open but all service is reduced. This affected Linda's commute this morning, if it does again I will just change her hours to 9:20 to 12:20

 

She said she would just start out earlier tomorrow.
