According to a federal mandate for public transit, Coast RTA will be instituting a “No Mask, No Ride” policy on all vehicles and public facilities.  Passengers needing a mask will be provided one by the driver. 

As a reminder, Coast RTA continues to be “Fare Free!” to prevent lingering at the fare box in an effort to keep our drivers and the traveling public safe.
