LAFAYETTE, IN, April 5 — CityBus will continue to enforce its mask requirement for all bus drivers and riders, even though Governor Holcomb’s state mandate will end on April 6.
Because it’s a federally funded entity, CityBus must follow the federal mask mandate and require everyone on its buses to wear a face mask to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Continuing to follow the mandate is in accord with the CDC’s January 29 order that requires mask-wearing while riding public transportation. That includes planes, trains, buses, and any other type of public transportation, as well as transit stations and airports nationwide.
“We understand any confusion or frustration that comes from this decision, as we all hope these measures become unnecessary someday,” said Bryce Gibson, CityBus Manager of Development. “Until then, we’ll continue to do our part to fight this pandemic.”
CityBus is providing free surgical masks to any customer in need. Riders may request a mask from their driver when boarding the bus.View All Maps and Schedules
