Travel information

Effective April 18, 2022, as a result of a change in federal policy, masks are no longer required on public transportation including on the MBTA (except on The Ride), commuter rail, buses, ferries, and airplanes, or while in rideshares (Uber and Lyft), taxis, and livery vehicles. Face coverings are also no longer required inside or outside of transportation hubs, including train stations, bus stops, and airports.

The Department of Public Health advises that individuals should wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated.

 For more information about masks, visit mass.gov/MaskUp.

The most important thing you can do to help protect yourself and others from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated and get a booster when you are eligible. If you haven’t received all eligible vaccinations yet, visit vaxfinder.mass.gov.
