#SitSafe

#SitSafe Logo

The Woodlands Township has launched #SitSafe, a campaign to promote safety on public transit, including The Woodlands Express Park and Ride and The Woodlands Waterway Trolleys.

The #SitSafe initiative focuses on the use of sanitization, personal protection equipment and social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health of Township Transit riders. If you’re riding on The Woodlands Express or The Woodlands Waterway Trolleys, you are riding in a seat that is treated with an extra level of care.

SANITIZATION

All Woodlands Express buses are being sprayed daily using Vital Oxide, which is a medical grade disinfectant. We have taken special consideration to areas that are touched more frequently such as handrails, seats, and armrests. We will continue to maintain thorough and frequent cleaning schedules on our buses for the safety of our passengers.

Trolleys will be wiped with disinfectants in the middle of the service day and will undergo a thorough cleaning process at the end of each day. We will continue to maintain thorough and frequent cleaning schedules on our trolleys for the safety of our passengers.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

  • The capacity of each Woodlands Express bus is limited to create the proper spacing amongst our riders. Additional buses will be on standby during normal hours of operation to ensure seating capacity is available for all runs. 

    Each trolley passenger capacity is limited to provide spacing amongst our riders. If the trolley is at capacity, download the Ride Systems App and select “The Woodlands Township” to track the next arriving trolley in real time. The app is available for download from both the Apple App Store and Google Play.
