As the City and Borough of Juneau escalates the risk level to Level 3: High with growing rates of community spread, Capital Transit is constricting its allowable ridership effective Friday.
Busses will be limited to nine passengers, and Capital AKCess vans will be limited to two passengers, the city said in a news release. Riders should only use public transit for essential trips such as health care appointments, pharmacy visits, grocery shopping and going to work.
Riders are also asked to board and exit via the rear door, and to wear masks over the nose and mouth while aboard all Capital Transit vehicles, according to the city. All riders are asked to practice social distancing to the maximum possible extent.
