    * Some seats on every bus will be blocked-off to assure adequate spacing between passengers again to comply with social distancing recommendations

Atomic City Transit staff have continued the following measures to further enhance the safety of our passengers and drivers:
    * Hand sanitizer will be available on all vehicles for both customers and staff
    * All transit vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to being put into daily service, as well as high touch areas disinfected between trips, throughout the day.

Thank you in advance for your understanding as we address such issues during the reduced service period.
