Considerations for the Safe Lifting of Transit Capacity Restrictions out of Operational Necessity in the Times of the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic

CASTA’s new paper Considerations for the Safe Lifting of Transit Capacity Restrictions out of Operational Necessity in the Times of the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic “outlines the research that shows that transit is a safe option for the public when transit agencies incorporate mitigation efforts and develop capacity restrictions that follow the CDPHE’s COVID-19 dial dashboard. Based on evidence stated included, this paper supports the argument that transit is not a particularly dangerous space, and that lifting capacity restrictions (in the event that this becomes an operational necessity) can be evaluated on a case-by-case basis without the undertaking of undue risk.”
