Face Coverings Mandatory for Xpress Commuters

Mandate Follows CDC’s Order Requiring Face Masks on Public Transportation and at Transportation Hubs

ATLANTA – The Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority announces that face coverings will be mandatory for Xpress commuters beginning Tuesday, February 2, 2021. The mandate follows the recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order, issued on January 29, 2021, requiring the public to wear masks while on airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis and ride-shares. The mask requirement also applies to travelers in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and seaports; train, bus and subway stations and any other areas that provide transportation. On January 31, 2021, the Transportation Security Administration issued a Security Directive to enforce the requirements of the CDC Order. Effective February 2, Xpress Transit Services will mandate masks for all customers riding Xpress, awaiting or disembarking their coaches and at their Park and Ride lots and bus stops.
