A new post from AARP describes steps that public transportation providers are taking to ensure that access to critical services continues during the pandemic. One transit company in rural Michigan service now delivers groceries, food pantry good, senior meals, and prescriptions to older adults and other vulnerable populations. Another, in rural Pennsylvania, is providing homeless individuals with rides to testing and quarantine locations. While these actions are providing support to key populations in the crisis, additional services and waived fees threaten the long-term sustainability of the public transit agencies. #covid-19
