As of April 18, 2022, the federal order requiring masks on transit is no longer in effect. All riders are encouraged to travel responsibly to protect their health and the health of those around them. Do not use transit if you are ill.
MSP airport, Metro Transit drop mask mandate after federal ruling The action comes after a federal judge in Florida struck down the federal mask requirement on airplanes, trains, buses and other public transportation on Monday, less than a week after the CDC had extended it through May 3.
As Earth Day arrives again on Friday, April 22, Metro Transit is observing the occasion by powering the all-electric vehicles in its fleet with wind energy from Xcel Energy's WindSource® program.
While taking any of our transit routes is always a greener and more sustainable option, this is an annual effort to highlight the energy-efficiency of METRO Blue and Green Line light rail trains and METRO C Line buses. Also, a fully electric bus will be running up and down Nicollet Ave. from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. on Earth Day. Free to ride, so give it a try!
The ongoing Zero Emissions Bus Transition Plan will greatly increase the number of battery electric buses in our fleet. There are solar arrays at several Park & Ride lots, and other sustainability innovations have led to a marked increase in energy-efficiency at Metro Transit bus garages.
Thank you for helping Metro Transit celebrate Earth Day by riding with us! metrotransit.org/earth-day
