Starting March 1, fares for health care workers will match what Metro Mobility customers pay – $3.50 off peak and $4.50 for peak (6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6:30 p.m.), plus a $.75 surcharge if the trip is over 15 miles.
All you need to ride is an employee identification badge that shows you are employed in a health care facility.
These trips will be following state guidelines for physical distancing and will only transport as many customers as is safe for the vehicle. Federal regulations require transportation operators to enforce wearing masks while boarding, riding, and exiting the vehicle.
Metro Mobility is doing all it can to make sure riders are safe and protected. Drivers are taking extra time to wipe down interior touch points with disinfectant after each passenger trip and buses pull into the shop for sanitization at least daily.
