MOOVER & CURRENT REMAIN PRO-ACTIVE DURING PANDEMIC

March 20, 2020

 

WILMINGTON & ROCKINGHAM, VT – Both divisions of Southeast Vermont Transit – The MOOver and the Current – remain focused on their efforts to mitigate the coronavirus impacts on its riders and staff.

Demand response riders are being screened ahead of time for their medical appointment, meal site, and shopping trips, as are the drivers and volunteers who transport them. The company has restricted seating in the rows behind and beside the driver’s seat in the effort to maintain the six-foot personal zone for the drivers. Vehicles are being sprayed and wiped down daily before each shift. Fares have been eliminated in the effort to reduce areas that may be a surface to spread infection.

The virus has caused the Current to change several routes effective Monday, March 23rd.

The Route 73 morning run from Bellows Falls-Hanover will be stopped, but riders needing to get to Hanover should ride the Route 74 morning run which leaves at 6:15 am – one hour later. The Route 74 services all the stops on the Route 73’s morning run. Route 74’s afternoon run will operate as scheduled.

In Brattleboro, the Current will run the Saturday schedule on a daily basis starting Monday, March 23rd. The Brattleboro Music Center, Winston Prouty Center, Cotton Mill, Groundworks Shelter, Omega, Exit 1 Industrial Park, and the Guilford Country will not be served.

Current Adjust Schedule On Okemo Route 61

Posted:

ROCKINGHAM – The Current will not operate the Bellows Falls-Chester-Okemo winter seasonal bus route March 17-22, 2020 because of Okemo postponing its operations during that time.

This route, also known as the #61, operates seasonally to transport Okemo workers. Okemo makes a substantial annual contribution to the operating costs, and ridership is up slightly this year over last.

Vail Resorts, Okemo’s parent company, decided Saturday night to suspend operations at all of its North American resorts, including Okemo, from March 15-22. The Current operated the #61 Sunday and Monday, March 15-16, just in case staff needed to go to work.

Vail Resorts will announce Friday, March 20th, if it will re-open resorts starting March 23rd or not. The Current will mirror Vail’s decision on whether it resumes #61 service or not and will make an announcement.

The service was scheduled daily until April 12th.

SEVT Remains Proactive On Coronavirus

Southeast Vermont Transit (SEVT), operators of the Current and the MOOver, continues to follow state and federal guidance to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Guidance specifically for public transit has been given to SEVT by the Federal Transit Administration, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Additional guidance has been given by the Vermont Department of Health. 

SEVT began treating its buses last week with recommended cleaning and disinfectant products, and all staff including drivers have been trained in personal hygiene requirements. Buses are sprayed before and after each shift, and railings, dashboards, and door handles are wiped down daily with an EPA-suggested disinfectant.

All SEVT routes and services are maintaining their existing schedules except when a particular route is affected by a school closing.
