Just a reminder during this time, the city is limiting transit services for essential use only.

To follow with social distancing guidelines, El Metro is only allowing 10 passengers per bus route and for El Lift, the limited capacity is two passengers at a time.

City Manager Robert Eads says the people who truly need to use the bus services are those who need to buy groceries, medications or visit the doctor.

City officials are urging the public to only use the El Metro services if it is truly necessary.
