Most Transit Agencies are Mask Optional Now

Most public transit agencies have made optional the wearing of a facial mask while aboard buses and trains.

A story posted on the website of Progressive Railroading this week noted that New York City is one notable exception.

Most transit agencies dropped the mask rule after a federal judge in Florida invalidated the U.S. Centers for Disease Control federal mask mandate.

The mandate was first imposed in January 2021 and had been extended several times.

Following that ruling Amtrak and the nation’s airlines also changed their own face mask rules to make wearing of masks optional.

CDC continues to recommend that transit system users wear facial masks while aboard transit vehicles.
