With the state under a “stay at home” order, there are fewer cars on the road. In the Treasure Valley, public transportation is an essential service and remains an important mode of transportation for many people working essential jobs. 

Boise State Public Radio’s Morning Edition host George Prentice talked with Mark Carnopis of Valley Regional Transit to learn more about the business of moving people while keeping riders and drivers safe during a pandemic.
