MAKE YOUR MOVE

IT’S TIME TO GET BACK ON BOARD

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.

ADVANCING EAST LANCASTER SURVEY

The East Lancaster Avenue community is invited to complete a brief survey to provide vital feedback on the future vision of the historic corridor between downtown Fort Worth and beyond Interstate 820.

Taking the survey will help Trinity Metro and the City of Fort Worth create a transit-oriented development (TOD) plan to design a more connected, accessible, and thriving East Lancaster Avenue corridor through the implementation of local high-capacity transit and surrounding economic development.

MEET THE ENVOY’s

Juanita has been a part of the Trinity Metro family for 15 years. Her favorite part about her job is being able to explore and learn Fort Worth and the surrounding Metropolitan areas on public transit. This allows her to provide better customer service for riders. Juanita recommends riding Route 25 to Texas Roadhouse.

Juanita advises riders to try public transit at least once. Do not let fear stop you from learning an important life skill. She also encourages riders to try Envoy travel training to help make their first time riding a good experience.
