The Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority (CCRTA) has begun temporarily adjusting its service levels, as part of the organization’s proactive response to the coronavirus (COVID-19.) The health and safety of customers, employees, and community members is theorganization’s top priority.
CCRTA began adjusting service levels on March 18th, with service ending earlier on select routes. On March 20th, CCRTA began running a modified Saturday schedule, with service concluding earlier on select routes. The continued adjustments have been implemented in order to promote social distancing, public health, and to accommodate for enhanced cleaning procedures.
The schedule changes allow for rigorous cleaning of CCRTA buses, paratransit vehicles, transfer stations, and facilities with hospital grade cleaning solutions throughout each day. In addition, all CCRTA buses (including paratransit) and facilities undergo a thorough misting disinfectant sprayer treatment at theconclusion of bus service or business.
All CCRTA buses (including paratransit), and facilities have been equipped with hand sanitizer stations to help reduce the spread of germs. CCRTA is also keeping riders informed through digital displays, posters, flyers, service alerts, and social media.
Public transportation is an essential service, and CCRTA will continue to be responsive to the transportation needs of the community unless mandated by executive order. CCRTA is appreciative of the community’s efforts to mitigate the spread of germs through the maintenance of proper hygiene, social distancing, and a reduction of public contact and travel. The organization asks that any individual who is feeling sick, avoid using public transportation, in order to maintain a safe work environment for bus operators, riders, and community members.
CCRTA has maintained communication with the Office of Emergency Management with both the City of Corpus Christi, and Nueces County. CCRTA will continue to coordinate with governmental agencies as it relates to public health and safety. The organization is mindful of the workforce and community’s wellbeing as it strives to provide safe public transportation to the area.
