COVID-19 Response

Metro continues to take measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Like partner transit agencies nationwide, Metro is closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and working with local health officials to ensure the health and safety of employees and riders.

Steps include:

  • Continuing a rigorous daily cleaning schedule with an increased concentration of disinfectant
  • Adding an anti-microbial coating during Metro’s ongoing bus seat cleaning process
  • Using an electrostatic sprayer on all buses and paratransit vehicles every evening, which disperses a CDC-approved disinfectant across all interior surfaces
  • Requiring masks on all Metro buses and MOBY paratransit vehicles
  • Trading out buses on high-ridership routes during the day for extra cleaning
  • Installing safety shields around driver seats to reduce contact between drivers and riders

If riders have concerns about particular buses, they are urged to notify a Metro employee, contact Metro’s customer service at (402)341-0800, or submit a comment through Metro’s online form.


Metro encourages riders, staff, and the public to follow the guidance of health officials. Nebraska Medicine has issued the following recommendations regarding prevention:

  • Wear a mask or face covering over your mouth and nose.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, using hand sanitizer as a second option.
  • Don’t touch your mouth, nose or eyes, especially with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay at home.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Don’t cough or sneeze into your hands.
  • Frequently clean and disinfect frequently touched objects in your home, car and workplace.
