BART’s current mask requirement ends October 1st. The first day masks will not be required is October 2nd.
BART strongly encourages riders to continue to wear masks in the system. Free masks will continue to be available at Station Agent booths and from BART PD personnel.
BART may reimpose a mask mandate within the paid areas of the BART system if any of the following conditions are met:
- A local health officer reinstates indoor masking in any of the five counties served by BART (Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara)
- The California Department of Public Health reinstates an indoor masking requirement.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or Transportation Security Administration imposes a masking mandate.
- Any U.S. metropolitan area outside the Bay Area experiences a COVID-19 surge as defined by the CDC. A surge is defined as any spike in case reports that may overwhelm the local points of care.
