Starting Monday, June 7, AC Transit will transition from six-foot onboard physical distancing requirements to three feet, which will allow for increased onboard passenger capacity.

“Fifteen months of six-foot physical distancing dramatically reduced our ability to deliver our vital service to East Bay Riders,” the agency said Monday. “Previously, our passenger limits were as few as 10 riders on standard buses and no greater than 24 riders on our largest buses.”

Starting June 7, passenger capacities will increase to 20 riders for 40-foot standard buses, 24 riders for 45-foot buses, 32 riders for 60-foot articulated buses and 48 riders for 43-foot double-decker buses.

AC Transit cites ample progress in COVID-19 vaccinations in its service area for reducing physical distancing requirements, along with onboard safeguards such as free masks and hand sanitizers, shields for drivers, regular sanitization practices and advanced HVAC system air filters.
