Let’s hope today brings better news.  I’ll update you tomorrow.


Miami-Dade’s transit union launched “Ride Not Die,” a campaign that calls on Miami-Dade lawmakers to increase sanitizing of buses and trains and provide operators the same protective gear issued to police officers and paramedics. It warns passengers to enter at their own risk since the buses aren’t sanitized between stops and some operators are given one Clorox wipe per day to clean their wheel and seat.

Jeffery Mitchell, Miami-Dade transit union president, said they are issued masks, but not the N95 masks that provide the best protection against coronavirus which are prioritized to first responders. According to Mitchell, drivers are told to make the mask last a week as operators continue to become infected and hospitalized.
