HEART of TRANSIT
With everything going on in our world, Public Transit has been on the front lines providing continuous service getting people to work, medical appointments and other essential and critical services. Dialysis, cancer treatment and access to food pantries is vital for our communities. For the safety of all, there have been large purchases of face masks, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies. In April we began fare free service to limit hand to hand contact and lessen the spread of the virus. This means expenses have increased and revenue has decreased.However, we must be on the front lines to keep communities running and taking care of those who are most vulnerable in the rural areas of Central Iowa.
FTA is pleased to share this thank you video from Secretary Elaine L. Chao to the thousands of public transit employees that are still on the job in communities all across the country. Transit employees represent critical infrastructure workers responsible for transporting police, doctors, nurses, grocery store clerks and other essential workers to and from work every day. Many public transit employees are making incredible sacrifices to ensure that America keeps moving during this incredibly difficult time.
We sincerely appreciate all that they do.
K. Jane Williams, Acting Administrator
