Wearing a mask or protective face covering is now mandatory on PSTA buses as of Friday, June 12 after the COVID-19 virus infection rate more than doubled in the state of Florida. If riders are not wearing a mask or protective face covering, they may be asked not to ride or passed by based on driver discretion due to safety concerns for PSTA employees and the community.
As a reminder to our riders, the bus destination signs read “Cover Ur Face B4 U Ride.” It’s important to note that most operators will enforce this rule and require passengers to wear a face covering before boarding. Don’t take a chance – plan on wearing a protective face covering or mask on board PSTA buses. We remind riders to wear face coverings to protect others and yourself during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wearing a mask is recommended by CDC travel guidelines on transit. PSTA customer service centers are distributing one free bandana face covering per person to keep riders and drivers safer. Please remember to take essential trips only and practice rear door boarding and social distancing.
