Basin Transit Service and VR partner to get the help Patricio actually needs​

Patricio Lopez

Patricio Lopez is a key member at Basin Transit Service (BTS) in Klamath Falls, Oregon. As a result of his work, zero infection cases have been traced back to the Klamath public transportation system despite transporting over 100,000 people since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

VR helped Patricio overcome a hearing impairment that was heightened during the pandemic, as he had relied on reading lips which is not possible when people are wearing masks.
