Pace's response to COVID-19
The safety of our passengers and employees is Pace's top priority and we are working diligently to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are working closely with local, state and federal agencies to monitor the situation and respond in accordance with CDC guidance. Communications are a critical part of our response plans. To that end, we are reaching out to municipalities and stakeholders to update them on Pace’s efforts to limit exposure of employees and passengers to COVID-19.
We are making every decision with the well-being of our passengers, our employees, and our communities in mind. As a standard practice, Pace cleans and sanitizes buses daily. We’ve added an extra disinfecting step to our already stringent nightly cleaning regimen. We have also provided our front-line employees with hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes for use in the field when soap and water are not available.
We have posted CDC recommendations to limit the spread of the virus online, on our vehicles and on our phone messaging systems. We are using all of our communications platforms to connect with our riders and make sure they are up-to-date on our efforts to limit the spread of this virus. Passengers and stakeholders are encouraged to sign up for Pace email alerts here. You can follow us on social media or visit PaceBus.com/Health for the most up-to-date information.
To limit the exposure of Pace employees to the virus, administrative staff will postpone or cancel all attendance at in-person events and meetings unless it is deemed business-critical by Pace’s Executive Director. Use of technology, like teleconferencing and videoconferencing, is encouraged. We will continue to implement every measure recommended by health officials to prevent the spread of this virus.
