Roseview Transit implements New Safety Measures

April 1, 2020

Roseview Transit is implementing new safety measures to prevent the spread of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). These measures are intended to increase the safety of both transit riders and employees. 

Effective Wednesday, April 1, the following adjustments will be implemented until further notice: 

  • Roseview Transit will limit capacity to one rider per row of the vehicle.
  • Roseview Transit will not allow riders to sit in the first two (2) rows of the vehicle.
  • Dialysis patients will be transported by the Richmond Fire Department.

Roseview Transit provides an essential service for many who need access to food, jobs, and health care. In keeping with the recent Executive Order from Governor Eric Holcomb, Mayor Snow urges the community to use public transit for essential trips only. Riders that have essential travel needs and are not experiencing symptoms can continue to use Roseview Transit and should practice social distancing by maintaining as much space between themselves and other riders as possible. 

The City of Richmond is monitoring the situation closely and may implement additional adjustments as deemed necessary. Roseview Transit will continue to follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), and Wayne County Health Department to ensure the actions being taken are comprehensive and appropriate. Roseview Transit’s objective is to safely provide transit services to those who need it most.
