Masks required on public transit; Biden administration extends rule

Masking on transit

Bay Area transit agencies are reminding passengers that anyone riding trains, subways, buses, ferries, trolleys and cable cars must wear a mask per standing order from the Centers for Disease Control.

The mask mandates for those using public transportation have been extended to early 2022 by President Joe Biden's administration.

People who refuse to wear a mask may be subject to a civil penalty, the CDC notes.

August figures from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency show mask compliance on Muni at 94% or better.
