Valparaiso Transportation COVID update 11/11/2020
As we look at the country and the States of Indiana and Illinois rising COVID cases in a surge at this time. I want to Reassure all our Transit riders for the ChicaGO Dash, V-Line and South Shore Connect shuttle services. Please read.
COVID-19 Cases are on the rise as this second surge of the Virus sweeps through-out our country and states. Valpo Transit has not wavered our efforts to your safety and the safety of our transit operators. Governor Holcomb has increased restrictions for most Indiana counties as of this weekend. Valpo Transit will continue to do everything we possibly can to maintain clean and sanitized buses for everyday operations. We continue to clean and sanitize our vehicles nightly as well as high touch areas through-out the day they are in service. A complete disinfecting fogging solution is administered on a weekly basis. Masks and hand sanitizer are available on every vehicle. Ask your driver if you are in need of hand sanitizer or a mask. V-Line bus shelters are disinfected on a weekly schedule as well and all this will continue indefinitely! Fares will remain free to continue a contactless ride on the South Shore Connect and the Dash buses through the end of 2020.
We do ask that you all do your part to prevent the spread of this virus. By staying home if you have symptoms or feel sick, Wash and sanitized your hands frequently. Masks will remain mandatory on all Valpo Transit vehicles through the end of November and until the state health department has given the approval that they will no longer be effective to limit the spread of the Corona Virus.
Thanksgiving is upon us and we will have no service on Thursday November 26th for all transit services. The Chicago Dash will also not run on Friday November 27th while the V-Line and connect will operate on their normal schedules.
Thank you for your continued support of the Valparaiso Transit services and we wish you all a healthy and safe Holiday!
