Per the governor's directive, face coverings are required to use our transit and paratransit service, effective June 26. The cloth covering can be a face mask, handkerchief, or even a scarf, but must cover the nose and mouth.
There are some exceptions to the mandate, including:
- Individuals who cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition or disability
- Individuals who are unable to remove a face covering without assistance
- Children 9 years of age or younger

If you do not have a cloth face covering, there are easy ways to make one using inexpensive, common household items. Read instructions or watch a video tutorial to learn how to make your own face covering.
Front-door boarding and fare collection
The RTC will resume front-door boarding on fixed route transit service starting Sunday, June 7, and passengers will be required to pay fare. Paratransit customers will also be required to pay fare.
To promote social distancing, speed up boarding and provide a touchless boarding process, the RTC encourages customers to purchase a paperless pass via the rideRTC mobile app. The free app is available for download from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. However, purchasing paper passes and paying with cash through the on-board fareboxes remain options.
