Crossposted from Metro Matters
King County Executive Dow Constantine announced Metro is rolling out more than 1,400 first-of-their-kind automated safety partitions between passengers and the driver, to be installed on Metro buses, including Sound Transit Express buses operated by Metro. Metro also will equip over 100 buses with on-board dispensers to provide masks on the busiest routes.
To provide greater operator and passenger safety, Metro ceased front-door boarding and collecting fares on March 21.
