Everyone on board must wear a mask.
Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation in the U.S., including:
- HOP (City of Boulder’s public bus operated by Via Mobility Services)
- Via Paratransit
- The Climb
Masks are also required anytime you are inside a U.S. transportation hub, such as an airport, train station, or bus station.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) extended the security directive requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and hubs through May 3, 2022. Read the TSA announcement here.
During this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will work with the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) regarding when and under what circumstances masks should be required for public transportation in the future. Any changes will be based on the COVID-19 community levels, risk of new variants, national data, and the latest science.
Thank you for helping us comply with the federal mask mandate.
