South Shore Operating Mask Optional Car

Faced with a significant number of passengers who refuse to wear face masks, Indiana-based commuter railroad South Shore Line has begun offering a mask optional car.

During the CVOID-19 pandemic, the South Shore has required passengers to wear face coverings but the railroad soon experienced difficulty enforcing the order.

South Shore President Michael Noland said that there wasn’t much the railroad could do in cases in which passengers refused to adhere to the policy.

Rather than have passengers arrested, Noland said the South Shore went to a mask optional car.

Noland said having a mask optional car has led to 100 percent compliance with mask wearing in other cars on trains.
