Grand Valley Transit Now Requiring Face Coverings

GVT is now requiring riders to wear face coverings while riding and boarding the bus 


In efforts to continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Mesa County, Grand Valley Transit is now requiring all riders to wear a mask or face covering while on or boarding the bus. 

The mask or face covering must cover the nose and mouth. Reusable cloth masks are available for GVT riders at the Downtown or West Transfer Facilities while supplies last, limit one per rider.

This policy will go into effect starting Wednesday, May 13, and will continue until further notice. The policy is set forth by the Grand Valley Regional Transportation Committee and GVT staff as a preventative measure to keep GVT drivers and riders safe and to continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

In addition to wearing masks or face coverings on the bus, GVT riders are still asked to use GVT only for essential trips, spread out on the bus to practice safe social distancing, and wash or sanitize their hands often. 

Passengers that are experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, or shortness of breath), have confirmed exposure to COVID-19, have tested positive or are awaiting test results for the virus should not ride the bus. Passengers who have completed recommended quarantine or self-isolation will be allowed to ride.
