ICATS Transit, Iredell County’s public transportation system, announced Tuesday that passengers will not have to pay a fare to ride the transit system during the COVID-19 crisis.
This will be a temporary measure in response during the state of emergency.
ICATS Transit encourages safe practices for our drivers and passengers, especially during this Covid-19 period. These practices encourage maintaining distances of at least six feet from others, frequent hand washing, and the use of gloves, masks, and disinfecting solutions at home, work, and on vehicles.
By using these safe practices and temporarily eliminating fare interactions on board, ICATS Transit hopes to help keep our passengers and personnel safe.
