RIDER ALERT:

Following a federal court ruling striking down the public transportation mask mandate, the Detroit Department of Transportation will encourage but no longer require the use of masks on buses, at shelters, or in buildings. DDOT continues to recommend that transportation riders, operators, and employees wear masks, especially in areas that do not allow social distancing. However, masks are no longer required in any circumstance regarding public transportation. The Center for Disease Control continues to strongly recommend the use of face masks in indoor public transportation settings.
