Santa Rosa CityBus and Santa Rosa Paratransit will resume fare collections beginning on Feb. 1, 2021, CityBus officials announced Monday.

Rider fares on the services were temporarily suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A reason for the suspension of fares was to ensure social distancing at the fareboxes on buses.

Officials announced city transit will be installing clear barriers between passengers and drivers at the fareboxes to help maintain safe distancing when fare collection resumes.

CityBus and Paratransit passengers are required to wear a face covering.
