(FORT WORTH, TX – June 16, 2021) – School is out, workers are returning to the office and everyone is ready for a summer vacation. Whether you’re commuting, day-tripping or heading to the airport, you can get there on public transportation.
The health and safety of passengers and operators are very important, and Trinity Metro has worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to keep riders safe from infection. Through contactless payment and enhanced cleaning protocols, the agency continually strives to maintain the health and safety of everyone who rides. An extension of that is the ongoing federal mandate that requires passengers and employees to wear masks when on board vehicles or when at a station.
Additionally, Trinity Metro utilizes an advanced air filtration process that is an ionizing based system to cleanse the return air flow on units. The ionizer device “ionizes” the viral atoms and by being ionized, they are able to be trapped by the filter, which is changed regularly.
Another way to enhance cleanliness is using backpack electrostatic sprayers that are used inside vehicles after use. After spraying, each vehicle has to air dry for at least two hours before returning to service.
Where can you go?
Trinity Metro’s bus network makes it easy to commute to work or to visit local attractions, such as the Fort Worth Stockyards, the Fort Worth Cultural District or the Fort Worth Zoo.
