Burlington Transit makes changes in wake of COVID-19 spread
Burlington Transit is making some significant changes in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The transit agency says that beginning on March 19 and until further notice, Burlington Transit customers are being asked to board and exit from the rear doors of every bus.
Customers using personal mobility devices can board and exit using the front doors.
Burlington Transit is also free at the moment, so fare payment is not required.
“To provide social distancing, customers should use alternate rows and choose seats away from other customers. Customers are requested to stay behind the priority and courtesy seats (behind tape),” the transit agency said in a news release.
Current schedules are still in effect, but the Downtown Terminal is closed effective March 19, 2020.
