Remember safety and professionalism on Halloween
Halloween is a festive event for many people, and is sure to bring out customers young and old who will look to TriMet to provide them with safe transportation to and from their activities. Remember that operators are the face of TriMet, and your contact with customers is important to how they view our organization and our service:
• The wearing of costumes is not permitted while operating a TriMet vehicle, or performing work as a TriMet employee.
• Be especially alert for children and families who may be out trick or treating on Halloween.
• Some of your customers may be wearing Halloween costumes. TriMet does not prohibit passengers from wearing masks and facial coverings. Masks or facial coverings, in and of themselves, are not considered to be “obviously suspicious” under the H-O-T protocol. It is suspicious behavior, not appearance, which prompts the H-O-T protocol.
If you have any questions, please contact your manager. Thank you for your hard work, and have a safe Halloween.
