Overview: The French Government asked that public transport employees take certain measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

The law states that employees should sanitize public transport vehicles daily.

Additionally, it asks that drivers be separated from passengers by at least one meter and that passengers go in and out of the back door when possible.

The sale of tickets by ticket agents was also suspended for the duration of the state of health emergency.

Public transport lines that fail to take these precautions will be shut down.
