Bus & Train Carriers Face Mask Policies

To curb the spread of the coronavirus and maintain a safe environment for both passengers and service crew, many carriers have introduced brand new face mask policies.

While some companies merely recommend that you cover your face while traveling, others may refuse to allow you to board the vehicle unless you have a face mask. Scroll down for a breakdown of face mask policies by carrier, so that you are prepared for your upcoming trip.

At Wanderu, we strongly recommend that you wear a face mask that covers your nose and your mouth while you are on board the bus or train and while you are waiting at the station, regardless of the carrier’s official policy.

All Amtrak customers are required to wear a facial covering on trains, thruway buses, and at stations.

Facial coverings can be removed when customers are eating in designated areas, in their private rooms, or seated alone or with a travel companion in their own pair of seats. Small children who are not able to maintain a facial covering are exempt from this requirement.
