Coronavirus (COVID-19) Precautions & Response

NICE Bus is committed to the health, safety, and wellbeing of riders and employees. We are continually in contact with Nassau County and New York State to follow their guidelines in response to health alerts.

We have enhanced our daily cleaning procedures, including disinfecting all high-touch surfaces every evening (every 24 hours). These include poles, handrails, seats, benches and grab bars on vehicles. Public service messages are being installed in all vehicles and transit centers. At the Rosa Parks-Hempstead Transit Center, we are installing touchless hand sanitizers and cleaning surfaces multiple times a day.

UPDATE: April 20: Per Governor Cuomo's order: Passengers are REQUIRED to wear a face mask or face covering while on the bus for the safety of other riders and operators.  Any passenger not wearing a mask may be refused service.
