Port Authority adopts Social Distancing Policy
March 17, 2020
The Port Authority of Allegheny County is implementing a temporary Social Distancing Policy on all vehicles effective immediately.
Signage will be posted on all vehicles reminding customers to maintain a safe distance of at least six feet from each other and from the operator.
The priority seating areas will be kept in the upright position unless needed by a senior or an individual with physical disabilities or mobility limitations.
This temporary policy will be in effect until Pennsylvania and Allegheny County lift their states of emergency.
Port Authority customers are being urged to use common sense hygiene practices to limit the spread of germs and illness, like washing their hands or using hand sanitizer immediately after riding the bus or light rail vehicle; changing their seat if they notice someone near them who appears to be sick; sitting down if possible to avoid holding on to poles and straps; and staying home if sick.
