Sioux Area Metro to Resume Full Transit Services
Mayor TenHaken is pleased to announce that Sioux Area Metro (SAM) will resume full transit services beginning on Monday, June 22.
“I would like to thank our transit partners at Sioux Area Metro for continuing flexible operations and especially for preserving essential trips during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mayor Paul TenHaken said. “Based on our current COVID-19 trends, we believe resuming full service will allow for increased demand for rides while still maintaining the highest degree of safety for our passengers.”
Safety measures will remain in place to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 among passengers and SAM employees. Each bus will be limited to nine passengers at a time.
“Our staff is prepared to resume full services,” SAM General Manager Randy Hartman said. “We will continue extra cleaning of all buses each day and strongly encouraging all riders to wear masks.”
A new time schedule will be available online at siouxfalls.org/sam at noon Sunday, June 21.
