Twin Transit is closely monitoring current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak developments and creating solutions that will allow us to continue serving our community, while reducing health risk. Our main priority is keeping our clients, our employees and our community safe.

Twin Transit COVID-19 Response

At Twin Transit, we’re committed to using our resources, time and talents to serve our community during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We have enacted several new measures and instituted new programs to help alleviate the burden of COVID-19 measures. A short summary of each effort is detailed below:

Meal Delivery

United Way of Lewis County, Lewis County Seniors and Twin Transit are partnering to deliver meals to those age 60 and over who are following the County’s guidance to remain in their homes in response to COVID-19. Click here for more information.

Personal Protective Equipment for First Responders

On March 27, Twin Transit donated $10,000 to the Centralia Chehalis Chamber of Commerce to supply local first responders with personal protective equipment during the COVID-19 outbreak.

“It is essential that we keep our first responders healthy,” said Twin Transit Community Relations Director Andrea Culletto. “The Chamber is dedicating their time, talents and resources to this important cause and we want to do everything we can to help.”

East Lewis County Temporary Service

Twin Transit is extending routes into East Lewis County during Mountain Highway’s two-week closure. This temporary extension of services is designed to ensure rural residents can access important amenities and services during the COVID-19 shutdown. The new East County Route will begin on March 20, 2020 and operate four trips per day, Monday through Friday, until Mountain Highway service resumes. For more information, click here.

Preventative Measures

Twin Transit is taking the following preventative measures in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

  • Each Twin Transit bus is fully cleaned and sterilized following CDC guidelines nightly
  • Twin Transit offices are also cleaned and sterilized nightly
  • All non-operational personnel are working remotely
  • We are following official federal, state and local public health guidance, while continually monitoring the situation for changes or updates

Route Adjustments

From March 18 through April 27, Twin Transit’s service hours will be reduced to 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. During this time, Twin Transit will only operate three hourly routes, with the focus of helping riders access work, medical appointments, grocery stores and other essentials.

These steps are necessary to protect our passengers, our employees and our community.

Twin Transit will continue to provide paratransit service to help those living with a disability access:

  • Necessary medical appointments
  • Grocery and drugstore visits
  • Other essential services
