Santa Clarita Transit to Begin Enforcing Fare Policy January 1, 2021

Beginning January 1, 2021 operators on all Santa Clarita Transit services will begin asking riders to once again pay their fare.

 

In March of 2020 Santa Clarita Transit adopted a number of precautions in order to safely provide essential transit services. Some of these precautions included rear door boarding when possible as well as reduced capacity on buses and plastic barriers separating operators from passengers.

 

Santa Clarita Transit recently completed the installation of contactless rear-door TAP validators on all local vehicles. Throughout the month of January we will begin to once again enforce fare payment. We ask that riders please ensure their TAP cards have valid fare by visiting TAPtogo.net or calling 866.TAPTOGO (1.866.827.8646). Customers with iPhones may also pay using the new TAP app which works with the newly installed validators. Finally, should you need to purchase a TAP card please visit the Transit Maintenance Facility or select outlets throughout town (please call ahead as some may be operating modified hours).

 


 

A partir del 1 de enero de 2021, los operadores de todos los servicios de Santa Clarita Transit empezarán a pedir a los pasajeros que vuelvan a pagar la tarifa.

 

En marzo de 2020 Santa Clarita Transit adoptó una serie de precauciones para proporcionar de forma segura los servicios de tránsito esenciales. Algunas de estas precauciones incluían el embarque en la puerta trasera cuando era posible, así como la reducción de la capacidad de los autobuses y barreras de plástico que separaban a los operadores de los pasajeros.

 

Santa Clarita Transit ha completado recientemente la instalación de validadores TAP de puerta trasera sin contacto en todos los vehículos locales. A lo largo del mes de enero comenzaremos a hacer cumplir una vez más el pago de la tarifa. Le pedimos a los pasajeros que se aseguren de que sus tarjetas TAP tienen una tarifa válida visitando TAPtogo.net o llamando al 866.TAPTOGO (1.866.827.8646). Los clientes con iPhones también pueden pagar con la nueva aplicación TAP que funciona con los validadores recién instalados. Por último, si necesita comprar una tarjeta TAP, por favor visite el Transit Maintenance Facility o algunos puntos de venta en toda la ciudad (por favor llame con anticipación, ya que algunos pueden estar operando el horario modificado).

Transit Service Update Regarding COVID-19

Santa Clarita Transit (SCT) considers the health and safety of our employees and customers to be of utmost importance. In light of recent updates regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) SCT continues to monitor the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for up-to-date preventative best practices for our operators and maintenance staff.

Please note that while SCT always upholds regular cleaning practices of our vehicles and facilities, we are currently implementing enhanced cleaning procedures. This includes additional cleaning of surfaces that experience elevated levels of physical contact such as doors, handrails, armrests, pull chords, fareboxes, etc. Maintenance staff uses hospital-grade disinfectant on all of the aforementioned surfaces daily across our entire fleet.

In following with CDC recommendations, we urge our passengers to:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
    • Stay at home if you are ill
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
  • Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol
