CAMBUS Service Alert: CAMBUS to resume front door boarding beginning Sept. 21, 2020

Sept. 16, 2020

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, CAMBUS practices are being continually evaluated and adjusted so essential transportation services can continue to be provided.  In addition to enhanced cleaning and disinfecting processes, transparent barriers have been installed to shield drivers so riders can enter through the front doors. CAMBUS is resuming front door boarding on Monday, Sept. 21. Riders should always enter through the front doors. Rear doors should only be used when exiting. Signage will be posted at the rear doors to remind riders to no longer enter the vehicle through the back doors.

Entering through the front doors only will help ensure riders are accurately counted by the driver.  Boarding counts are saved in a database that allows CAMBUS to evaluate all boarding data by route, day, time, and stop to help plan routes and schedules.  All riders entering through the front doors and exiting through the back doors will also reduce rider face-to-face interactions.
