Riders are no longer required to wear a mask while on the T, except for on The RIDE. The MBTA continues to follow CDC guidelines in encouraging people to wear face masks on public transit. Please respect your fellow passengers' decisions.
Additionally, the following service and operations policies are in place to protect the health and safety of essential workers who rely on public transit, as well as our frontline staff.
- Standard fare collection processes have resumed on buses, trolleys, and The RIDE.
- The CharlieCard Store is open with limited hours.
- The RIDE is small-vehicle public transit, and it is not possible to safely distance riders with COVID from others. If you are or have been ill with COVID, you must make transportation arrangements other than The RIDE until you have been medically cleared.
This page is updated as federal and state guidance changes.
Schedules may be adjusted due to COVID-19's impact on workforce availability
