Starting Saturday, June 20, 2020 until further notice and in accordance the City of Waco Mayor Kyle Deaver’s Order Supplementing Resolution No. 2020-345; dated June 19, 2020, All persons 10 years or older shall wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when using our transportation services or public facilities where it is difficult to keep six feet away from other people or working in areas that involve close proximity with coworkers. The CDC advises face coverings for people 2 years old or older. Face covering may include homemade masks, scarfs, bandanas, or handkerchiefs. WTS employees are also required to wear face coverings under the same circumstances as the general public.
For WTS employees and transit passengers face covering do not need to be worn if doing so will poses a greater mental or physical health, safety, or security risk.
Wearing a mask or face covering does not replace frequent handwashing, avoiding touching one’s face and staying apart from other whenever possible. These are the most important steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 illness.
In accordance with National, State and Local guidance and restrictions, pertaining to mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Waco Transit System (WTS) will only allow up to 10 people per vehicle at any given time. In order to assist WTS in this effort, we ask that passengers practice social distancing by utilizing seats that do not have a sign indicating “seat unavailable” on them. We apologize for any inconvenience, but your cooperation and adherence to these practices will allow Waco Transit System to continue to provide essential transportation services to the citizens of Waco and surrounding communities. The health and safety of Waco Transit System operators and the general public are top priority.
