CityLink Response to COVID-19/Coronavirus Disease Outbreak
CityLink is taking extra precautionary measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus disease. All CityLink buses and facilities, including the Transit Center (407 SW Adams), are being sanitized and deep cleaned daily with EPA approved products recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Peoria City/County Health Department.
CityLink is also limiting the time patrons are allowed to congregate inside the Transit Center lobby to two hours. Patrons will be asked by security to wait outside in the fresh air if they need to wait more than two hours for a lineup to depart the Transit Center. The lack of patrons inside the lobby will allow CityLink staff to properly sanitize and deep clean the facility more frequently.
“We are trying to do our part to help prevent the spread of the COVOID/coronavirus global outbreak. CityLink serves thousands of area residents with bus service weekly, and we have been taking these extra precautions to thoroughly sanitize and clean our buses and facilities for the past two weeks,” said CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs. “We hope the patrons of our facilities will be understanding as we try to provide a safe and clean environment for our passengers, employees and the general public,” continued Roelfs.
Additionally, all CityLink fixed route buses are equipped with hand sanitizer for passengers to use, and the Transit Center is equipped with three hand sanitizer stations.
There are currently no plans to change the routes or service provided by CityLink fixed route buses during the COVID-19/coronavirus disease outbreak.
