Trinity Metro yesterday announced it has partnered with The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC) to offer COVID-19 testing to the agency’s rail engineers and conductors.
HSC runs a drive-through testing site originally opened only to first responders.
“Trinity Metro team members interact with people on a daily basis, and this expansion of our test site will help further reduce transmission of this disease,” HSC Fort Worth President Michael Williams said in a press release.
Meanwhile, New Jersey Transit is taking advantage of low ridership to increase its positive train control testing schedule, Northjersey.com reported earlier this week.
"We’re running a couple of test trains during the day, which we normally wouldn’t be able to do," said Ray Kenny, NJ Transit director of rail operations, according to the news outlet. “It’s freed up some of our supervision and some of our equipment.”
