Rob, I agree that the public transportation needs to be improved meaning education and cultural upgrades for combi and taxi drivers. My husband and I masked up to do various errands this morning (after staying at home 10 days) like banking, picking up many more cubrebocas (masks for Spanish-challenged folks), grocery shopping, car parts shopping and dog/cat food & meds shopping.

I surveyed the drivers and found only 10 percent cubrebocas on their faces. Luckily, we have a car (16 yrs. old) because I would not enter either form of local transport, especially with our higher count of those infected. On the good side, it seemed more than 90 percent of walkers used masks.

Did you say anything to the drivers? If you don't let them know why you aren't using their service then nothing is gained. It's up to us, not the government, to let transportistas and other businesses know why we avoid using their services. The government gave them hand sanitizer and facemasks as well as information how to help protect the health of their passengers and themselves.
