Effective July 15, 2020, Governor Steve Bullock ordered mandatory mask use in public for all counties with over four (4) active COVID-19 cases. Specific language states “…all employees, contractors, volunteers, customers, or other members of the public (must) wear a face covering that covers their mouth and nose at all times while entering or remaining in any indoor spaces open to the public.” This order includes all forms of public transportation. Effective immediately, all bus and paratransit passengers over the age of five (5) years are required to wear facemasks to utilize MET Transit services.
MET Transit Manager Rusty Logan stated, “MET Transit is continuing its efforts to fully service the community throughout the COVID crisis. We will continue to follow local, State, and Federal required practices in ensuring the safety and comfort of our passengers and employees. To aid customers in adoption of this policy, all MET vehicles have masks on-board for public use. Passengers may take one as needed. Simply speak to a driver if you need further information.”
MET reserves the right to refuse service to anyone not complying with the order, unless the person is exempt due to a medical condition. Masks are required on all vehicles and in all MET Transit facilities.
