Reminder: Masks must be worn on public transit

Updated: Feb 8



Planning to take public transportation?


Just a reminder that as per Cortland Transit's standing regulations, face and nose coverings must be worn when traveling on the buses. The requirement extends to bus shelters, transit hubs and all forms of public transit, as per the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recently issued guidelines


That requirement, effective February 2, 2021, requires passengers wear masks on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. The CDC also urges masks be worn in all public places.





Also, you can still make a complaint if you witnessed a driver on public transit not wearing a mask.

You can file a complaint with New York State directly.


There are a few options for making a complaint:


Call 1-833-789-0470


File a complaint against your employer or place of work here.


File a complaint against a business or about an incident in your community here.


As always, you can also call the Mobility Manager to discuss your experiences-good or bad. Catherine Wilde can be reached at 607-662-5240 from Monday to Friday 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. She will return any missed calls within 24 hours and will also respond to any messages left over the weekend, within the next business day.
