PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority riders are required to wear a face covering.
PSTA tweeted that as of Monday, if riders do not wear a mask or face covering, they will be turned away or passed by due to safety concerns for employees and the community.
PSTA will also be handing out free bandanas, with a limit of one per person, at the following customer service center locations:
- Grand Central Station
- Park Street Terminal
- Pinellas Park Transit Center
- Williams Park
The CDC recommends wearing a face covering on transit and riders are asked to try to keep at least 6 feet away from others while both waiting at a bus station, as well as on a bus.
PSTA confirmed on June 10 that a driver tested positive for the virus. PTSA said it does not believe any passengers came in contact with the driver, who followed social distancing rules with passengers.
