|03:10PM / Thursday, March 19, 2020|
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Regional Transit Authority is limiting public use of the Intermodal Transportation Center to those utilizing BRTA's bus service, Peter Pan, Greyhound, Amtrak, or buying food at the coffee shop.
BRTA has also instituted social distancing within the ITC, by removing tables and spacing out the remaining chairs to ensure staff and customers' safety.
Bus service remains in effect and all vehicles are cleaned every evening using products that are effective against the spread of the novel coronavirus. The facilities are being cleaned using the same coronavirus effective products multiple times a day, especially in high-traffic, high-touch areas. Posters from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Federal Transit Administration outlining ways to reduce the spread of the coronavirus are posted in our facilities, vehicles, and employee bulletin boards.
Operators have also been advised to follow CDC guidelines regarding hand washing, coughing, and general etiquette to remain healthy.
As of this moment, there have been no changes to any routes or times. As this situation is uncertain, the administration of the BRTA is in contact with federal, state, and local leaders and will follow their guidance. When changes are warranted, a press release to local media outlet will be made. BRTA's website, www.berkshirerta.com
, will have any updates in the Public Announcement page.
