RTA extends its face mask requirements

Today, the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) extended its face mask requirement while riding buses, streetcars, ferries, and paratransit vehicles, through March 18, 2022. This extension corresponds with the announcement made today by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). 

The RTA originally instituted a mask requirement for passengers on agency vehicles during the Spring of 2020. While this announcement extends the date of enforcement, all other aspects of the requirement remain unchanged, including exemptions and civil penalties. Failure to comply may result in denial of boarding or removal. The refusal to wear a mask is a violation of federal law and passengers may be subject to penalties under federal law.

The following are the required order minimums: 

  • Passes (1, 3, and 31-day): minimum 50; increments of 25
  • One Way Tickets: minimum of 50; increments of 10 
  • Tokens: 500 minimum (1 box)

*Vendors may place an order for both tokens and passes, if desired.
