COVID-19's
Continued Impact
COVID-19 has caused a shift in the
way transit agencies operate and communicate
with riders and employees.
Part of a recent APTA report, " On the
Horizon Planning for Post-Pandemic
Travel, " included case studies of six
transit agencies and their pandemic
response. One of the theme's the report
noted was the agencies' ability to
secure employee and rider safety. While
the U.S. government has extended the
requirement for riders and employees
to wear masks while on public transit
through March 2022, agencies are exploring
ways to boost rider confidence.
Air filtration systems have emerged
as one component where transit agencies
can improve safety of both operators and
riders. In 2021, Metra announced plans
to upgrade the ventilation system on its
railcars with a new three-stage filtration
and purification process and Bay Area
Rapid Transit began installation of denser
filters throughout its fleet of train cars.
More recently, IndyGo said it will work
with Lumin-Air to install air filtration
systems in all IndyGo fixed route, bus
rapid transit and paratransit vehicles.
Innovation is also a valuable element
to transit safety enhancements. This fall,
the Metrolinx Incident Command team
in the Greater Toronto Area conducted
a pilot study of environmental sampling,
looking for the virus that causes
COVID-19 in air and on surfaces. The
team collected 36 samples from a busy
rail station, bus terminal and inside vehicles.
The team did not detect the genetic
material from the virus in any of
the samples.
Also in Canada, TransLink in Metro
Vancouver and the Toronto Transit
Commission (TTC) installed antimicrobial
copper coatings on high-touch
transit surfaces on vehicles following a
successful pilot phase that supports copper's
ability to kill up to 99.9 percent of
bacteria on transit surfaces.
