All Passengers are required to wear a face mask (a nose and mouth covering) onboard all LRTA vehicles and in waiting areas.
On May 1, 2020 Governor Baker issued an order requiring everyone to wear a face covering in public – Including on Public Transportation. Passengers are responsible for having a nose & mouth covering which can range from a medical mask to a bandanna, scarf or t-shirt to a homemade or painters mask, etc.
The LRTA is providing transportation for
ESSENTIAL TRIPS ONLY.
Riders must be traveling to an essential destination. All riders are required to exit the bus at the end of its route. Multiple or consecutive round trips are not permitted and riders who appear to be loitering on the bus will be asked to deboard.
Should you take the bus?
Clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, grocery stores, banks and work are considered essential trips. Following the CDC recommendations the LRTA requests that all passengers using LRTA services wear a face covering for your safety and the safety of all others.
Thank you for your cooperation.
