Statement regarding face mask use on public transportation
In light of the court ruling on Monday, April 18, 2022 and effective immediately,  the TSA will not enforce the mask mandate  on public transportation.   Therefore, JP Transit and its operators will  no longer enforce the mask mandate on Buses or Paratransit vehicles.   However,  the CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks on public transit.   We will communicate any updates publicly if and/or when they change.
