Tucson Transit Services Strongly Encourage Passengers to Use a Face Covering or Mask

Tucson’s transit services – Sun Tran, Sun Link, Sun Shuttle, and Sun Van – are strongly encouraging all passengers to use a face covering or mask when riding on transit vehicles to protect one another from the spread of COVID-19. Non-medical masks, cloths, bandanas, and scarves can be used.

Face coverings should cover the nose and mouth. Passengers who are 2 years old and under and those who are medically unable should not wear a face covering.

Riders can take additional preventive measures to stay safe, including covering coughs/sneezes and washing hands regularly, practicing 6 feet social distancing from other passengers, staying behind the yellow line after boarding a Sun Tran bus, using public transit for essential travel only, and staying home if sick. Drivers are provided with masks, gloves, and disinfectant spray.

Transit fares currently remain free to reduce direct contact between passengers and drivers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides information for anyone who wishes to make their own face coverings.
