COVID-19 Update

Updated 2/1/21

Face coverings must be worn to ride Metro buses and MOBY paratransit vans, and at Metro facilities, including transit centers, ORBT Stations, bus shelters, and Metro’s office. Face coverings must cover both the face and nose of the wearer.

Effective Monday, February 1st at 11:59 p.m., riders not adhering to the Center for Disease Control’s public transportation mask order – in accordance and consistent with Executive Order 13998 – will be denied access to Metro buses, paratransit vans or facilities, including bus shelters, ORBT stations and transit centers*.  Metro is also asking riders to wash their hands and social distance when possible.

Metro upholds the mask order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, maintain a safe transit environment for riders, and support response efforts at the federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal level. Throughout the pandemic, Metro bus and paratransit services have provided vital connections throughout the pandemic and will continue to be a lifeline for passengers in the region.

Metro continues to take additional measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, including:

  • Adding an anti-microbial coating during Metro’s ongoing bus seat cleaning process

  • Using an electrostatic sprayer on all buses and paratransit vehicles every evening, which disperses a CDC-approved disinfectant across all interior surfaces

  • Trading out buses mid-day on the busiest routes for extra cleaning due to high ridership

  • Installing safety shields around driver seats to reduce contact between drivers and riders; Metro staff are required to wear face coverings while operating a Metro vehicle or at a Metro facility

  • Continuing a rigorous daily cleaning schedule with an increased concentration of disinfectant

Executive & CDC orders:

More resources:

*Exemptions per the Order include children under the age of 2 years and passengers with a disability who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, because of the disability as defined by the Americans with Disability Act, as amended.
