Downtown Connection Bus Has New
Look And More COVID Protections
The Downtown Alliance’s free Downtown Connection bus is still
operating every day and, this month, the Connection has deployed
a new fleet of buses with more COVID protections.
The free connector bus is still sporting its distinctive red wrapping,
but now it has a new interior configuration and air-filtration system
to better enable the mitigation of communicable airborne disease.
As opposed to the previous fleet, which largely sat passengers
face-to-face with a center aisle, seats in the new vehicles are
configured in forward-facing rows, thereby allowing for the
installation of plastic shields between rows for socially-distant
Additionally, the new fleet will feature a state of the art, UV-C
air-filtration system. UV-light disinfection is now widely used in
hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work
surfaces, and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne
infectious diseases. In scientific studies, UV light has been proven
to kill 90% of microbial contaminants after 10 minutes of exposure
and 99% after one hour.
The Alliance will maintain a rigorous daily cleaning and disinfection
routine. If you have to get out of the house, the free Downtown
Connection is here to help.
