CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville Transit System will suspend fare collections for all riders to protect the health and safety of passengers and staff during the coronavirus emergency.
“I believe it would be in the best interest of CTS passengers and employees and be in line with the transmission prevention guidelines to eliminate fare collections, especially cash transactions, at our Transit Center and onboard our buses,” CTS Director Paul Nelson said.
The no-fare collection policy will remain in effect for the duration of the state of emergency declared by Mayor Joe Pitts and the City Council on March 18. The emergency is in effect through April 2, but can be extended as needed.
During the coronavirus emergency, CTS encourages people to travel only when necessary and to practice social distancing while on buses, at the Transit Center and at bus stops.
