The security directive states that face masks remain a requirement for passengers and employees on “all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems.”
“RIPTA is committed to following TSA guidelines to keep our employees and passengers safe while we continue to navigate through this pandemic,” said Scott Avedisian, RIPTA’s Chief Executive Officer.
Passengers under the age of two and those who have a disability that prevents them from safely wearing a mask are exempt on RIPTA buses. Those who cannot comply due to a disability must contact RIPTA prior to traveling on board any of its vehicles. They must seek an exemption in advance by calling Customer Service at 401-784-9500, ext. 2012.
