WestCAT will increase passenger limits on buses to 50 percent of total seating capacity starting June 15, which will coincide with the state’s reopening plans.

Capacity limits starting June 15 will increase to 44 passengers for double-decker buses, 28 passengers for 45 foot motor coaches, 20 passengers for 40 foot low-floor buses, 23 passengers for non low-floor 40 foot buses, and 16 passengers for 35 foot buses.

AC Transit is also moving to increase capacity limits on its buses — starting June 7 — as COVID-19 case rates decline and vaccinations increase.
