GCTD has taken several actions in response to COVID-19 and the continuing public health crisis, all in an effort to address the immediate and long-term impacts of the pandemic on our public transit services.
In July 2021, the Board approved GCTD’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan. The purpose of this document is to detail Gold Coast Transit District’s efforts to assist in the revitalization of the health, social and economic fabric of our community and to have GCTD emerge as a more resilient organization following the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan was developed with input from the public, employees and includes recommended actions aligned with the California Transportation Association (CTA) Future of Transit task force report.
Per the CDC and local public health guidelines, GCTD strongly recommends the use of face masks upon boarding. Our bus operators and Customer Service Center have extra face masks for passengers as needed. Faces masks are not required to board the bus.
Riders should observe social distancing rules when sitting down to the furthest extent possible. Passengers are advised to stagger the rows and sides of the bus where they sit from other passengers.
