Santa Ynez Valley Transit (SYVT) is taking measures to protect both its employees and customers from the coronavirus (COVID-19). Management staff are monitoring and implementing guidelines and procedures set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). All personnel have been instructed to continue frequent handwashing, and drivers and other staff have been provided with hand sanitizer as well. Employees who feel unwell are required to stay home.
We have added time to the pre-trip inspections of SYVT vehicles each day so as to wipe down high-touch surfaces (such as handrails and fareboxes) with disinfecting wipes. Riders are encouraged to utilize recommended handwashing procedures and maintain social distancing as much as possible on the bus and at bus stops. In accordance with County Health Department emergency orders, riders are also required to stay home if they feel unwell.
