Capacity limits on buses due to COVID-19

Capacity limits on buses due to COVID-19

April 15,2020

The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) is committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our passengers and employees. As a result, we will operate with lower rider thresholds in order to follow social distancing guidance and avoid overcrowding. If a bus nears capacity, our operators may bypass stops and turn on the “Drop-Off Only” head-sign. Riders on board can continue to exit buses at their requested stop.

We appeal to our riders and our community to partner with us in observing passenger thresholds. We continue to monitor capacity on our fleet daily. We are prepared to make changes as needed and when additional resources become available. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience.

In addition to social distancing, we encourage riders to wear a mask on board, covering the nose and mouth, effective immediately. Please help protect our staff, families and loved ones by minimizing trips and reserve transit for essential business. Thank you.
