Safety information

Roseville Transit’s top priority is the safety and health of customers and employees. Following state health orders, drivers are required to wear masks while working and are temperature and symptom checked prior to the start of each shift.

Since March, passengers have been boarding at the rear of Roseville Transit buses, where possible. Additionally, fare collection has been suspended on Local, Dial-A-Ride, and Paratransit services. These actions, along with reducing bus capacity and blocking off select seats, have increased the physical distance between passengers and drivers. The California Department of Public Health requires face coverings be worn when at bus stops and while traveling on public transit. 

Roseville Transit buses are cleaned and sanitized daily. High-touch surfaces are also sanitized throughout the day. Electrostatic sprayers are used to deep clean bus interiors with a disinfecting mist.
