“Even during this pandemic, we are taking all necessary measures to continue providing the exceptional level of service our riders have come to expect,” said Mayor Cameron Smyth. “We have taken extra safety precautions by sectioning off every other row of seats and posted social distancing messaging throughout our fleet. Several weeks ago, we also implemented an enhanced extensive daily cleaning schedule of the entire transit fleet using hospital-grade, EPA approved disinfectant. As we continue providing a measured response to this ongoing event, the safety of our riders remains our number one priority.”

  1. Santa Clarita Transit line has been jam packed with people inside the buses lately. Some riders are obviously not well. As of Tuesday the drivers had no protective gear. I have only seen a driver one time wearing gloves.

    There is no social distancing & this community is being put at risk.

    I just read on a local app that 3 employees tested positive for Covid-19 and one employee died from the virus Monday.

    The 6 route is the worst! It goes down soledad up to Shadow pines. Don’t hesitate to take video! You will see for yourself the unsafe conditions and the PURE NEGLIGENCE of the SC Transit line! This is a TRUE example of how this Virus is spreading RAPIDLY.
