As promised at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Macon-Bibb County Transit Authority (MTA) continually reviews its policies and makes adjustments as warranted.
In light of the State of Georgia reopening many businesses, effective immediately, MTA will resume regular Paratransit service, replacing “essential travel only” since the outbreak.
Paratransit riders must continue to call to schedule trips, and fares for Paratransit (and Fixed Route) service remain FREE.
However, please note, with an abundance of caution and mindful of science, MTA will:
1. Continue to take the temperature of Paratransit (and Fixed Route) riders before they board any MTA vehicle. Temperature must be below 100.4.
2. Paratransit (and Fixed Route) riders must continue to wear a face covering that is affixed to the head. Face covering refers to traditional/recognizable mask; makeshift mask; bandana, fabric or cloth AFFIXED/SECURED to the head (pinned, clipped or attached with elastic, tie, etc.) to shield mouth & nose.
At this time, all other current MTA policies and procedures remain the same. For more information on this Paratransit policy adjustment or any MTA policies: (478) 803-2504/2505 or MTA website: mta-mac.com
