Shelby Public Transit Changes
“Shelby Public Transit has increased rigorous and frequent cleaning of all hard surfaces in facilities and buses. We are taking preventative measures as recommended by the CDC and the Ohio Department of Health,” stated Assistant City Manager/Public Works Director Gary Clough.
“Thankfully residents are following the Stay-at-Home orders to help limit the spread of the virus, which means ridership is down about 70%,” Clough added. “Shelby Public Transit takes the Ohio Department of Health orders seriously and will only be providing rides to and from medical appointments, to those who need to replenish groceries or supplies and to work for those deemed essential by the United States Department of Homeland Security. These are listed at https://www.cisa.gov/publication/guidance-essential-critical-infrastructure-workforce. Service will be denied for all other requests.”
The Shelby Public Transit revised plan of action has been approved by the Ohio Department of Transportation.
