ABSTRACT

Impact of COVID-19 on Public Transit Agencies   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Key Takeaways: "1. Transit agencies are taking action to protect the public from COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] by purchasing extra supplies, implementing additional vehicle and facility cleaning, and providing employees and the public with guidance on how to protect themselves. 2. Some agencies have already seen ridership decreases in excess of 70 percent. Ridership is likely to drop further as local travel is restricted. 3. Three in four agencies anticipate cutting service in the coming days and weeks, as they respond to state and local directives, closure of schools and businesses, and potential increases in employee absences from COVID-19."
