TRAVEL WITH PEACE OF MIND
Taking care of our customers and employees is our #1 priority. Our team will continue to work hard to make sure we are staying safe together.
FACE COVERINGS REQUIRED
All passengers are required to wear a face covering while onboard our buses, and in Boltbus facilities. Effective August, 14, 2020, aligning with CDC best practices, masks with valves or vents, bandanas which are unsecured under the chin, and plastic face shields (by themselves) will no longer be accepted as approved face coverings. Our employees are wearing approved masks in our terminals and our drivers are wearing masks on board while scanning tickets and interacting with customers. If you don’t have an approved face covering of your own, see how to make one here. The only exception to the face covering requirement is for customers younger than 2 years old. If you are unable to wear a face covering for any reason including a medical condition, we regret that you will not be able to travel on Boltbus at this time. This is for the safety of all passengers and Boltbus employees.
If you aren’t able to bring your own face covering or if yours is damaged in route, you can ask your driver or one of our other Boltbus team members for a mask and they will be glad to assist. Local laws may also require that you wear a face covering outside the facility in the city your trip begins, ends or where you transfer.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS
We understand that bus travel can make social distancing difficult. To help protect yourself and those around you when you travel, wear your face covering throughout the trip as required and sanitize your hands regularly.
Scheduled to travel but don’t feel 100%? We ask that you reschedule your trip to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you. Once you’re feeling better, we’ll be happy to welcome you onboard.
ON THE BUS:
- We require customers to wear a face covering while onboard the bus
- We are encouraging customers to use extra space to create physical distance from one another, where possible
- You are separated from our driver’s area and equipment by a plexiglass shield while making announcements or operating the bus
- Showing your E-Ticket or paper ticket on your phone also helps provide physical distance. Drivers are wearing masks while scanning tickets and interacting with customers
Cleanliness and Sanitization
- We have increased the frequency of wipe-down cleaning of high touch areas onboard using a CDC recommended disinfectant
- We now ozonate each of our buses. Ozonation is an advanced sanitation process that has been proven to kill viruses, including COVID-19
- This is in addition to the deep cleaning and sanitization that occurs after each bus trip
- A bus is removed from service and subjected to a complete decontamination process if we are notified by the CDC that a customer or employee is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
IN THE TERMINAL:
- We are encouraging customers to remain six feet away from others whenever possible while in the terminal and while boarding the bus, where possible
- Our teams have added six feet indicators in our company owned locations and agencies to help with the recommended social distance
Cleanliness and Sanitization
- Our team members will be wearing masks for your safety as well as theirs
- We have increased the frequency of disinfecting common surfaces (counters, kiosks etc.)
- Sanitizers are more widely available for customers and employees
