August 23, 2021: Federal Face Mask Requirement for Public Transit Extended through Jan 18, 2022
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has issued a Security Directive extending the face mask requirement for all transportation networks, including public transportation, while onboard or indoors through January 18, 2022 to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
DART will continue to require a CDC approved face mask be worn over the mouth and nose by passengers and operators at all times while on DART vehicles including buses, trains and paratransit vehicles, Trinity Railway Express trains, in buildings and onboard the Dallas Streetcar. On June 10, 2021, the TSA revised its face mask policy, allowing public transit passengers to forego masks in outdoor areas.
