Safety Measures

Hampton Roads Transit OnDemand is taking safety measures to lessen COVID-19 exposure. We’re working hard to ensure that every trip you take is as safe and worry-free as possible.

  • Wellness checks. In-app wellness checks help make sure passengers and drivers are symptom-free and ready to ride before they get going. Please stay home if you have either been diagnosed with COVID-19, think you’re exhibiting symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has recently tested positive.
  • Regular vehicle cleaning. Vehicles are being professionally cleaned regularly and we’ve provided drivers with cleaning supplies in order to perform frequent and thorough wipedowns of the vehicle interior, with extra focus on common surfaces and high-contact areas. They’re also equipped with plastic partitions between drivers and riders.
  • Constant evaluation. Regularly evaluating our safety measures to align with COVID-19 policies and regulations based on the current state of the response is a top priority.
