How can you help to support our transit workers?
Transit employees are doing fundamental work to keep the region going in spite of the emergency. So, if you are wondering what you can do to help support them, here are just a few ways:
- If you know someone who is a transit worker, or any other form of essential worker, offer to pick up their groceries.
- If you must take transit, wear a face covering.
- Do not ride transit if you are sick.
- And, if you can, please stay at home. It helps to minimize the risk of spreading disease and keeps workers like Dontrella and Bryan safe.
