Masks usage optional while riding Metro, Effective Immediately
Advisory Effective: 4/19/22 - 5/31/22
Effective immediately, Mask usage on Metrobus is optional for customers and WMATA employees. This change comes due to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) currently suspending enforcement. TSA will not be enforcing its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs at this time, while the Biden Administration reviews a federal judge’s ruling on this matter.
