Face Coverings Mandatory on Public Transit

The Santa Clara County Health Officer’s extension of the Shelter-in-Place order through the end of May includes a mandate for transit personnel and passengers to wear face coverings while riding beginning Monday, May 4.

That means anyone boarding VTA vehicles will have to comply by donning a face covering and continue to adhere to social distancing requirements to the greatest extent feasible. Bus and light rail operators will also be wearing face coverings while in their vehicles.
