The Summit Stage bus system will increase the number of allowable riders on its buses from 10 passengers per bus to 50% of bus capacity beginning Wednesday, July 1, when the latest public health order takes effect.

A typical 40-foot bus carries about 60 passengers, so the new limit will be about 30 passengers. Smaller buses will follow the same 50% limit.

All riders ages 3 and older must wear face coverings over their nose and mouth as well as follow physical distancing requirements when possible. Members of the same household can sit together.
