Samples taken from Mountain Metropolitan Transit’s (MMT) Downtown Terminal show methamphetamine contamination levels that exceed the cleanup standards set by the state of Colorado.
To address this issue, MMT will hire a remediation contractor who is certified by the State of Colorado. At this time, the extent of the decontamination work required is unknown. The facility will be tested again after the remediation work is completed, in compliance with state standards and to ensure the Downtown Terminal is safe for public use.
“Mountain Metro is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its riders, drivers, and staff,” said Acting Transit Services Manager Lan Rao. “We are working closely with El Paso County Public Health on this matter.”
To protect the health and safety of employees and the public, the lobby and restrooms at the Downtown Terminal will remain closed until further notice.
