Torrance Transit has suspended collecting bus fares indefinitely and is requiring most passengers to use the rear doors when entering or exiting to slow the spread of the coronavirus, protecting drivers and riders alike.
The policy went into effect Tuesday, March 24.
“This will help to minimize the interaction between the driver and the passengers,” the transit agency said in a press release. “Only passengers boarding with wheelchairs or who will need to use the ramp will be able to use the front door.”
