Attention Fixed Route And ParaTransit Riders:

Masks must be worn properly at ALL times on the bus! Otherwise you will be asked to leave the bus with a possible suspension. Covering your face with your shirt is not a mask! Your mask must come to the middle of your nose and come below the chin. This is a tough time for all, and we are trying to do our part to keep passengers and drivers safe! There are signs and diagrams on the bus showing how to properly wearing of the mask.

Thank you.

ATTENTION!!! Route 10 HCC Riders

Due to the increase number of Covid-19 cases here in Black Hawk county we will be doing some adjustments to the way we handle Route 10 Hawkeye.

They will inform you how and when you will be picked up. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but at this time with the pandemic going on, we have to make adjustments to make it all work.

A message to all our passengers:

Due to our daily Covid-19 cases and our increase in ridership, social distancing on our buses are unrealistic. Therefore, beginning on August 10th all passengers on fixed route buses will be required to wear a facial mask. Notice has been posted on all buses and our drivers will supply masks for those who don’t have one. After MET supplies a mask for you to use, we ask that you bring your own mask on future rides. The mask must be worn at all times on the bus. The mask must fit over the nose and below the chin.

This initiative goes along with the city’s policy of wearing masks in public buildings; the increase in the number of private businesses that require mask on their customers; and also in anticipation with the start of the new school year. MET Transit follows other transit agencies in the state to require masks on all passengers while riding the fixed route service. Our goal is to work and assist our passengers to conform to this new policy in order to fight this global pandemic we are all experiencing.

*****************************************************************************

Currently MET is operating both our regular Fixed Route and Paratransit service as normal. Our service is important so that healthcare workers, first responders or anyone else conducting essential business or needing essential services can get to their destination.

While everyone continues through these unprecedented times, we ask that you respect our drivers and passengers to observe social distancing while on the bus and wear a mask, to protect yourself and others by not spreading this virus. MET has taken appropriate precautions to protect our employees and customers by cleaning and disinfecting the buses more frequently, installing barriers for our drivers and restricting the seating capacity on the bus.

If you must ride the bus for your essential trip, please wash or sanitize your hands before and after your ride. If the driver offers you a mask to wear, please accept it and stay healthy. We are all in this together. Thank you. - David Sturch, General Manager Metropolitan Transit Authority.
