Due to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention's recent recommendation that people should wear cloth masks while in public spaces where social distancing may not be possible, the City is asking transit riders to please wear a cloth mask when riding a bus. 

Wearing a cloth mask while riding transit will help keep both the drivers and riders safe, and limit the spread of COVID-19. City bus drivers also have access to, and and wear, masks.

The City also reminds residents that travel on public transit should be used for only absolutely essential trips: to work, for grocery shopping, or healthcare related trips.
