Face Coverings to be Required on all MTD Buses Starting May 1st
Friday, May 1st
2020, MTD will require that all passengers wear a cloth face covering or mask in order to ride an MTD bus. A grace period through
Tuesday, May 5th
will be granted to provide the public with time to obtain an appropriate face covering.
Face coverings are important in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19, as individuals may be spreading the virus even though they may not show symptoms. Medical grade masks are not required—a simple bandana, scarf, or homemade cloth mask that covers the nose and mouth is sufficient. Face coverings are also not a replacement for maintaining 6 feet of physical distance from others, and they must remain over the nose and mouth during the entire trip.
