Beeline in Full Service and Providing Free Rides through April 30 

Glendale, CA - During these uneasy times, Beeline is making it easier to access essential services.  Beeline is operating its regular schedule at this time and is providing free fare for all passengers through April 30, 2020.

“Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, we knew that Beeline provided a lifeline for many of our residents”, said Mayor Ara Najarian, “and some of our frequent Beeline passengers may now find themselves unemployed due to the pandemic so it is imperative that the City provide free and uninterrupted access to essential services.”   

Beeline passengers are actively practicing safe distancing from each other while riding the bus, and all passengers are asked to board through the rear door in order to maintain safe distances from the bus operator.  Beeline buses are thoroughly disinfected each night. Frequently handled areas such as grab rails and pull cords are disinfected multiple times during the day for added protection.  “We are doing everything possible to maintain a healthy and safe system for our passengers and staff”, said director of public works Yazdan T. Emrani, P.E.

Passengers are reminded to follow Centers for Disease Control recommendations such as not touching your face, eyes and nose, washing your hands and using hand sanitizer when traveling on the bus.  Passengers who may be “coming down with something” are asked to refrain from riding the Beeline.
