  1. This is a great plan for all of the offices of King County. What is the plan for the buses? Will the handrails be sanitized at least once a day? Whenever the coaches are returned to any base? The handrails, including the entry, the overheads, the ones on the backs of the seats, at all of the doors, ON the doors? We, as coach operators, are exposed to many more people than those that work in offices, yet it seems we are almost always left out of safety measures such as these.
    So, what is the plan to keep the bus interiors cleaner?

    Thank you for a speedy response!

  2. This is great news for the offices of the county. What will be done for the buses? Will all the hand rails be sanitized daily? Not only the entry handrails, but the overhead rails and the ones on the backs of all seats, the doors (all doors), etc? We who are dealing with the public face to face are at greater risk than most of the people in the offices.
    Thank you.
