Kevon Brown | Rochester Public Transit

Artist | Tom Roster

Kevon’s job changed dramatically in March 2020, when the important job of cleaning Rochester Public Transit’s fleet of 70 buses became essential for the safety of passengers and drivers. He was trained on new equipment and materials, and now follows a rigorous protocol to disinfect the interior of each bus, every day. Kevon moved from Seattle to Rochester, where he has extended family, in 2018. He particularly appreciates the responsibility and independence that comes with his work at First Transit.
