|Face Coverings Mandated on BRTA Buses|
|11:15AM / Saturday, May 02, 2020|
Beginning Wednesday, May 6, in accordance with an order issued by Gov. Charlie Baker, all customers using a Berkshire Regional Transit Authority bus and/or paratransit must wear a mask or face covering over their mouth and nose.
Information on making a cloth face covering and how to wear a covering can be found on the CDC website.
Riders are also encouraged to practice social distancing while riding on the bus and maintain space when seating.
All riders must be traveling to a critical, essential destination. Critical trips are defined as work-related, vital appointments, or necessary shopping trips. All riders are required to exit the bus at the end of the route, or their stated destination, and may not re-board the same vehicle for a return trip. Multiple or consecutive round trips are not permitted, and riders who appear to be loitering will be asked to leave the bus.
For the health and the health of others, those who are sick, have a cough, fever, or other COVID-19 symptoms, are asked not to ride a BRTA bus.
