This week, TARTA joined fellow public transit authorities and industry partners from around the country to collectively advocate to #SavePublicTransit with a day of mobilization and engagement on Dec. 15.
The transit industry is calling on Congress and the Administration to provide at least $32 billion in emergency funding to ensure that public transit agencies can survive and help our communities and nation recover from the economic fallout of the pandemic. This federal aid will ensure that TARTA is able to continue to transport 3,000 customers daily to essential destinations including work, medical services and grocery stores.
It is expected that Congress will vote on the transit emergency funding as part of a larger COVID-19 relief bill this weekend. For more details about #SavePublicTransit and to show your support transit emergency funding, visit www.tarta.com.
This week, TARTA confirmed two new cases of COVID-19 among its employees. These employees work in TARTAâs maintenance division and do not interact with the public. Since March 2020, there have been 26 TARTA employees with confirmed cases of COVID-19.
TARTA is complying with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy requirements regarding the sensitive health information of employees who have tested positive. TARTA informs the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department of all confirmed cases of COVID-19.
