Masks are now optional on TriMet buses and trains due to yesterday's federal court decision and the new TSA directive. With the CDC still recommending that masks be used on transit, TriMet welcomes their continued use and asks that everyone be respectful of others. They will continue to make masks available on board for those who want them.
For the next few days, you may continue to see mask-related signs or hear audible announcements on our buses and trains. It may take a little time to fully adjust to the change and to remove all of those signs, announcements and everything else on board related to the mask mandate.
CTran is also making masks optional on its buses in Clark County.
