Yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an Order imposing a mask requirement applicable to public transportation systems, rail, and van, bus and motorcoach service providers to mitigate the risk of COVID-19. The CDC Order implements President Biden’s Executive Order 13998, Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel, “to save lives and allow all Americans, including the millions of people employed in the transportation industry, to travel and work safely.”
Science-based measures are critical to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Mask-wearing is one of several proven life-saving measures including physical distancing, appropriate ventilation and timely testing that can reduce the transmission of COVID-19. Requiring masks will protect America’s transportation workers and passengers, help control the transmission of COVID-19, and aid in re-opening America’s economy.
In addition to the CDC order, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) anticipates issuing additional information and guidance on this topic.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has posted Frequently Asked Questions online and will continue to add to this site with additional information in the coming days. The Department will be scheduling stakeholder calls beginning the week of February 1, 2021.
MTA will be closed December 25, 2020 and January 1, 2021 in observation of the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day holidays.
Weather Delays Expected 12-17-20
Expect major delays due to road/weather conditions on Thursday 12/17/2020. Plan ahead on intercity routes (Concord, Nashua) as weather predictions are indicating white out conditions. We expect to operate full service, with major delays.
MTA has temporarily suspended the evening bus service on Route 5: River Rd, Route 11: Front St and Route 41: The Green DASH, from 6:30pm on. This service will restart when the Manchester Colleges and Universities re-open.

Mask Mandate on all MTA buses
