Effective immediately, masks are no longer required for STA employees, riders on buses, Paratransit, or Vanpool, or visitors to STA facilities. However, masks are still welcome for anyone who chooses to wear one.
On April 18, 2022, both the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced a change to their policies regarding mandatory masking. There is no entity either requiring masking on public transportation or enforcing the prior regulations.
This change is the result of a court order. It is possible for this ruling to be appealed. STA will communicate any changes as they arise.
