GCRTA Boosts Cleaning Program
GCRTA cleans and cares about rider satisfaction! To ensure customer satisfaction we have boosted our cleaning practices. Our maintenance staff has always had an extensive checklist for routine interior cleaning for GCRTA vehicles; however, we have updated our cleaning processes and decreased the amount of time between interior vehicle cleanings.
We currently have a detailed process that provides a clean ride for our passengers:
- Floors are swept, mopped, scrubbed, and rinsed
- Ceilings are mopped, wiped, and rinsed
- Seats, stanchion poles, grip handles, seat backs, seat bottoms, seat frames, tops, stop request cords, door handles, and all horizontal surfaces are wiped, and rinsed
- All surfaces, including stanchion poles and ceilings, are to be sanitized and dust-free
- Windows, doors, mirrors, and windshields are sprayed and wiped edge to edge with a squeegee for a streak-free appearance
- Removal of trash and debris
- Deodorizing the air, seats, and some surfaces
- Quality assurance checks to ensure quality cleaning standards are met

New Bus Seats Are Arriving
To better serve our customers, we are moving away from cushion seats to plastic seating. Starting with our HealthLine, buses will have plastic seats featured with built-in antimicrobial properties.Our cleaning procedures have been revised to incorporate the new plastic seats. To maintain this protection, we will reapply the protective coating periodically. These antimicrobial properties protect against bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
