Pursuant to the Presidential Executive Order 13998, The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has issued Directive 152/84-21-01, which requires masks to be worn at all times while utilizing public transportation. This includes waiting at bus stops, boarding and riding our buses.

COVID-19 Practices

As of Monday, March 9, 2020, The Kauai Bus team has been wiping down all touchpoints on our buses and vans with disinfectant each day.

While all surfaces are clean when a vehicle leaves the facility, it does not remain that way once someone touches the surfaces or coughs/sneezes on them. We need all of our riders to help in preventing the spread of coronavirus. Riders can help by frequently washing their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; covering their cough or sneeze with their elbow; and to stay home when they are sick.

By working together, we can keep our public transportation system and our community as safe as possible.  While we’re doing all we can to ensure a safe and clean environment, we must also ask that riders closely evaluate their own health and take necessary precautions to avoid the spread of disease.
