Bus service

All COVID-19 precautions are still in place, including:

  • All riders over age 2, regardless of medical status, must wear a face covering while on board. Masks are required for all able-bodied riders; face shields or an equivalent are required for those who are medically exempt from wearing a full face mask.
  • Rear door boarding, unless boarding assistance is required.
  • Restricted physical-distancing zone behind each operator.
  • Intensive cleaning and disinfection of buses and equipment multiple times daily.
  • Please do not ride if you are sick or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.

Updated schedules and more information about our response to COVID-19, including current schedules, Mountain Line as an essential service, safety precautions and community support can be found at mountainline.com/covid19.

Safety

  • Follow the federal requirement to wear a mask or other cloth face covering while onboard all Mountain Line vehicles if you’re medically able and over the age of 2.
  • Wash your hands before and after riding.
  • Put as much physical-distancing space as possible between yourself and other riders while onboard.
  • Board through the rear door, unless assistance is required.

If you are experiencing symptoms, please avoid using public transit and visit the county’s website for a list of next steps: missoula.co/cvirus. 

Mountain Line is taking all precautions to ensure its bus operators, riders and the community are safe.

  • The agency thoroughly cleans and disinfects its buses and the Downtown Transfer Center lobby multiple times daily, paying particular attention to “high touch” areas, such as handholds and railings.
  • For operators, the agency has created a physical-distancing buffer zone by blocking off six feet of space behind each operator.
  • All operators are provided personal protective equipment.
