Loudoun County Transit has made operational changes following the guidance of local, state and national health authorities to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure on the system’s buses. These changes include face coverings and physical distancing requirements and more frequent bus cleanings. To allow for physical distancing on buses, seating capacity has been reduced to 50%. For more information, visit loudoun.gov/covid19transit.

To further reduce the risk of exposure, Loudoun Transit recommends that riders follow the CDC guidelines to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, such as avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home when sick, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and properly washing your hands frequently. Visit loudoun.gov/coronavirus for additional information and resources.

Over the coming weeks, Loudoun County Transit will continue to monitor ridership and services for possible additional changes. Details on service changes as well as current schedules may be found at loudoun.gov/buschanges.
