Coast RTA Announces Additional
Changes to Service to Address COVID-19
Conway (SC) -April 1, 2020- Coast RTA has taken additional steps
to continue fixed route and paratransit services and further our
efforts for social distancing on our buses.
Beginning Thursday, April 2nd until further notice,
Coast RTA's will no longer require fares and we ask passengers to
enter and exit through the rear door of buses when available. We
will also be limiting seating at the front of the buses to ensure
social distancing between passengers and operators.
Passengers in wheelchairs and those using
mobility devices will still be able to board via the ramp at the
front of the bus. The first rows of seats behind the operator shall
be vacant and clearly taped off but there will still be positions
available to secure wheelchairs and other mobility devices.
We encourage all passengers to only use our
services for essential purposes and toNOTuse public transit if they
are not feeling well or if someone in their household or inner
circle is ill.
Coast RTA will continue to use our social media outlets
(Facebook and Twitter), our website www.ridecoastrta.com and the
Coast RTA Ridetracker App to deliver updates to the riding public.
We have posted the updated schedules in our bus and online.
