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 its buses. These changes include compliance with face covering and physical distancing requirements, and additional bus cleaning procedures. Loudoun Transit bus service customers should be prepared to:

  • Wear a face covering on the bus and while waiting at bus stops.
  • When seated or standing, remain six feet from other passengers who are not in your household.
  • Ride for free until August 31, 2020, on all Loudoun Transit buses.

To further reduce the risk of exposure, Loudoun County encourages bus riders to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, such as avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home when you are sick, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth and properly washing your hands frequently.
