Xpress asks all customers to “Mask Up to Board Up.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued an order that requires face masks to be worn by all travelers while on public transportation (which includes all passengers and all personnel operating conveyances).

People must wear masks that completely cover both the mouth and nose while awaiting, boarding, disembarking or traveling on buses and other modes of public transportation in the United States and U.S. territories. People must also wear masks while at transportation hubs like park and ride lots, bus stops and train stations.

Effective February 2, 2021, Xpress Transit services will mandate masks for all Xpress commuters riding and waiting or disembarking transit at our Park and Ride lots and bus stops. Refusing to wear a mask is a violation of federal law.  Failure to comply will result in denial of boarding or removal, and may result in penalties. Passengers may be subject to additional penalties under federal law.

Important updates regarding the mandate will be posted at all Xpress facilities (retail centers, park and ride lots) and on Xpress communications platforms (website, bus onboarding videos, social media, SMS text messaging services and e-newsletters).
