COVID-19 Transit Limitations

Summit Stage is currently operating with evening service ending earlier, around 11pm, due to the COVID-19 response. Bus passenger capacity is reduced to 50%, which means a maximum of 30 passengers on our typical large transit buses, and a maximum of 20 passengers on our smaller buses. If a bus is full, passengers will need to wait for the next scheduled bus. At this time, we do not have the capability to send additional buses when one overloads.

Face Coverings and Physical Distancing

All passengers 3 and older are required to wear a face covering to help prevent the spread of the virus. The number of riders per bus is limited by 50% and physical distancing is encouraged, as much as is possible. On 2-door buses, passengers may be asked to use only the rear bus doors for loading and unloading.

Compliance with Public Health Orders

All Summit Stage riders must comply with all local and state public health orders.
