  3. Extra buses are being added to high frequency commuter routes to reduce load factors
  4. Hand cleaning products will be provided to the passengers, as supplies remain plentiful
  5. Continuous communication is taking place with our employees to ensure that they use every opportunity to wash their hands, stay home if they are feeling sick, and report any issues that arise

In closing, the MTA is committed to providing the safest transportation possible. We thank our employees, passengers, and the general public for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
