The U.S. Transit Security Administration has extended the face mask requirement for all transportation networks, including public transportation, through March 18, 2022. 

TSA’s initial face mask requirement went into effect on Feb. 1, 2021, with an initial expiration date of May 11, 2021. It was first extended through Sept. 13, 2021, and then to Jan. 18, 2022.

While this announcement extends the date of enforcement, all other aspects of the requirement remain unchanged, including exemptions and civil penalties. 

Figures from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency show high mask compliance during the last year.
