Masks Required On Board All Buses
Beginning Wednesday, May 27, 2020, the Clean Air Express will require that all passengers wear a cloth face covering or mask in order to ride a Clean Air Express bus. Medical grade masks are not required—a simple bandana, scarf, or homemade cloth mask that covers the nose and mouth is sufficient. They must remain over the nose and mouth during the entire trip.

Masks will be available on board all buses if a passenger needs one.

Face coverings are also not a replacement for maintaining 6 feet of physical distance from others. Physical distancing and frequent hand washing should be maintained when wearing a face covering.
