SP Taxi

Due to COVID-19 and the social distancing guidelines issued by both the DHS and the CDC, shared-ride taxi operations will be modified in the following ways effective immediately and until further notice:

  • the number of passengers per vehicle will be restricted to one (1)
  • passengers will not be allowed to sit in the front seat of taxi vehicles
  • drivers will be required to sanitize vehicles after each passenger

Additionally, we recommended that passengers that have a high-risk of severe illness to avoid using the service unless it is for medical, grocery, and employment-related trips. High risk individuals include people 60 years or older, people with underlying health conditions, people with weakened immune systems, and women who are pregnant.
