Update Regarding Hop Operations
The Hop continues to monitor the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak carefully and we are working closely with City, State and Federal officials to ensure we employ best practices regarding the cleaning of our vehicles and the safety of our staff and riders. We are increasing the frequency of our cleanings, employing cleaning agents and disinfectants recommended by the CDC, and instituting new policies to maintain the cleanliness of the vehicles throughout the day.
As of now, we will continue to maintain our usual levels of service. We strongly support all City and State efforts to limit the spread of the virus through social distancing and urge the public to heed these warnings and refrain from all non-essential travel. That said, we recognize that many in our community still have critical needs outside of their homes and rely on public transit to meet those needs. For those who continue to rely upon our service, we ask that you join the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic by being extra vigilant in exercising recommended hygiene practices, including regular and thorough hand washing, avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth, and covering coughs and sneezes with either a tissue or your elbow. On board the streetcar, passengers should leave additional space between themselves and others, and utilize the seats whenever possible as opposed to holding the poles or hand straps. Most importantly, if you are exhibiting any symptoms or feel ill, please stay at home.
