In an effort to strengthen social distancing, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation is limiting the number of passengers who can ride its DASH buses.

Starting today, the city's 30-foot buses will carry no more than 10 riders at a time. Its 35-foot buses will cap passengers at 12.

"We will continue to closely monitor all CDC guidelines that may apply to our services," LADOT officials said in an alert for riders.

The city's bus service has already been running on a reduced schedule and instituted fare-free, rear-door boarding in late March.
