Federal Mask Mandate Still in Effect for Public Transportation

Though the mask mandate for the State of Michigan expires on June 22, 2021, the federal mask mandate for public transportation remains in effect. You are still required to wear a mask while riding Harbor Transit buses and the trolley. Thank you for your cooperation and we’ll see you on board.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the U.S. Department of Transportation remind the traveling public that you are still required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs and stations.

For convenience. For cost savings.
