Face Mask Requirement For Public Transit Extended Through May 3

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), based on a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has extended the face mask requirement for individuals across 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 for an additional 15 days through May 3, 2022.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will continue to require a CDC approved face mask be worn over the mouth and nose by passengers, operators and contractors at all times while on DART vehicles including buses, trains and paratransit vehicles, Trinity Railway Express trains, in buildings and onboard the Dallas Streetcar.

Refusing to wear a mask, unless exempted or excluded under the CDC guidelines, is a violation of federal law and failure to comply will result in denial of boarding or removal, and passengers may be subject to federal penalties, including a fine ranging from $500 for the first offense up to $3,000 for repeat offenders.

Face masks and hand sanitizer dispensers are installed on buses, light rail vehicles, TRE vehicles and Dallas streetcars, and will continue to be available to all passengers.

If a DART passenger is concerned with someone not wearing a mask, they can contact DART Customer Service at (214) 979-1111, or use the "DART Say Something" app, which can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play for free.
