COVID-19 Update

Public Transportation is very important in the daily lives of so many people. Whether it be a ride to work, doctor’s office, grocery store or employment. Shawnee Mass Transit would like to assure our employee’s, clients, partners in the community and all medical facilities prior to the COVID (19) situation, we utilize strict disinfection and cleanliness procedures for the Transportation Vehicles and work environment.

We know and understand that many of you are concerned as we are. Rest assured, not only are we still following our cleaning and disinfection procedures, we have implemented a stringent schedule following the CDC guidelines to sanitize the transportation vehicles, depots and offices keeping our vehicles and surroundings safe and sanitized under the circumstances.

Shawnee MTD is monitoring the situation at all levels and will continue to follow the CDC guidelines and keep everyone safe and informed as the situation changes. Thank you to all for the cooperation and understanding during these times.
