Restore Chester County

Economic Action Steps — Transportation

Transportation includes both the movement of people and goods. Many transportation businesses have been permitted to continue operating throughout the pandemic, though diminished demand for ride-hailing services has affected a portion of professional drivers. Long-haul trucking operators, on the other hand, have encountered logistics disruptions, supply chain irregularities and the closure of rest stops, making long distance journeys more difficult.

Current Transportation Provider Practices

The following practices are being implemented by transportation providers around the county and nation to address COVID-19-related disruptions. These practices may be helpful for transportation providers not currently using them.
