Masks Required on Metro Transit Through May 3

Return to Blog

Update 4/18/2022: The TSA has rescinded its order requiring masks on public transportation. Metro Transit will no longer require face coverings or enforce mask wearing but customers may choose to continue to wear them.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires proper wearing of face masks, per federal law, and face masks are to be worn at all times. Failure to comply will result in denial of boarding or removal, and may result in penalties. Metro Transit will continue to comply with this federal policy, which was recently extended until May 3, 2022.

Masks are required for individuals who are vaccinated against COVID-19 and those who are not vaccinated.

Riding Safely

Here are some reminders for riding safely with us:

  • Federal mandate requires everyone to wear a mask on Metro Transit. Please wear your face covering on MetroLink platforms, at Metro Transit Centers, when riding on MetroLink, MetroBus and Metro Call‑A‑Ride vehicles or waiting for your bus.
  • Whenever possible, practice social distancing when on your vehicle or when waiting at your stop.
  • Use the Transit app for a contactless fare. You can buy most MetroBus and MetroLink passes through the Transit app with our mobile fares option.

    I don’t see any mask dispensers on the busses and your drivers don’t carry face masks.

      Hi Jane – Mask dispensers were installed on all buses at the front near the farebox when you board. If you don’t see one on a particular bus, please send an email to [email protected] with the Bus ID number so we can notify our Maintenance team.

    I just came here to celebrate the lifting of the mask mandate. It was lifted a week ago and I’m still celebrating. Woohoo!
