Earlier this week, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) shared its COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery Plan outlining its blueprint to increase service while protecting riders and employees. We are all looking forward to seeing the other side of this public health emergency.
On Thursday, May 14
, the WMATA Board of Directors voted to extend the Metrobus fee waiver to allow continued rear door boarding. Effective May 18
, riders are required to wear face masks or coverings on Metro trains, buses, and in stations.
