Effective immediately, masks will be optional throughout the METRO system, including at rail stations, transit centers, bus stops and inside METRO facilities. The lifting of this requirement also applies to METRO employees.

This change comes after yesterday's court ruling on the federal mask mandate and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) decision to suspend enforcement while the Biden Administration reviews the federal judge's ruling.

METRO's removal of all signage and messaging requiring masks on the transit system is anticipated to take 24 to 48 hours. During this time, operators and MPD officers will no longer instruct customers to adhere to the requirement.

METRO encourages its customers to make decisions that are in their best interest. The Authority will continue its rigorous daily and midday cleaning schedule, paying special attention to surfaces frequently touched by the public and sanitizer dispensers are still available on all vehicles. New information will be provided as it becomes available.
