RTA will no longer enforce mask wearing on the bus or at transportation centers.

Effective immediately, masks will be recommended but not required on RTA routes. This change comes as a result of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) recent decision to suspend mask enforcement on public transit nationwide. 

RTA’s mask requirement, which has been in place since spring 2020, has been based on federal regulations and the fact that safety is our number one priority. RTA thanks everyone for their commitment to safety and following the regulations for the last two years. 

It’s important to know the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is encouraging public transit users to continue wearing a mask.

While RTA passengers and employees are no longer required to wear masks on board the bus, masks are welcome and remain an important preventive measure against COVID-19. Anyone needing or choosing to wear one is encouraged to do so.

More than 50 people, including members of the RTA Board of Directors, city and county lawmakers and community partners, attended the April 8 groundbreaking ceremony for the Vine Street Mobility Hub. That means construction has officially begun on the hub, which is expected to open in the spring of 2023 with 16 bus bays, a community plaza, shade structures and plenty of greenspace. There will also be attractive amenities like seating areas, information kiosks and real-time messaging signs so people can know exactly when their next bus will arrive. While the project itself is something to marvel at, it’s also important to know that projects like the Vine Street Mobility Hub are part of a broader vision for a thriving, prospering and dynamic community. During the groundbreaking, RTA’s Chairman of the Board Zak Schwank said the future mobility hub — and others like it in Perris, Temecula, and Corona — are helping RTA create a transit system that will enrich our quality of life for years to come. “During a particularly dark period in our nation’s history, it’s always uplifting to be part of something new,” he said. “When this hub opens, it will propel our ongoing efforts to connect people with their jobs, with their schools, with their families and loved ones.”
