Federal law requires all customers wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while at our facilities, boarding our buses, and during travel. Masks must also be worn between sips and bites when customers are eating or drinking. Refusal to wear a mask is a violation of Federal law and may result in denial of boarding or removal from our facilities or buses; and passengers may also be subject to penalties.

Face masks with valves or vents, unsecured masks under the chin (such as a bandana), and plastic face shields (by themselves) are not allowed under Federal law and are not accepted as approved face coverings. If you don’t have an approved face covering of your own, please inquire about one at your local depot. For more information on how to best protect yourself from COVID-19, we recommend customers review the CDC’s website before traveling.
