Archived News: This news release is more than one year old and may include outdated information.

Due to the Transportation Security Administration's announcement that it will no longer enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs, wearing masks is now optional on Metro Transit buses and at its facilities.

Metro greatly appreciates all of its riders' cooperation during the extended time this mandate was in place.

Staff are working on removing signage on buses, transfer points, etc., but it will take some time to complete.

Metro apologizes in advance for any confusion and asks for patience as we work to remove all of this messaging.
