Metro Illinois Quad Cities announced it will start requiring face masks for all riders beginning Monday, August 10th.
Anyone over 2 years old, who is medically able to do so, will need to wear a mask while on the bus or in a terminal. This only applies to the Metro Illinois Quad Cities bus system.
Metro Illinois Quad Cities says it has distributed nearly 2,000 “Ride-Safe” kits to passengers over the past several weeks, which include a washable face covering, hand sanitizer and ride safe tips.
MetroLINK says all its vehicles are cleaned and disinfected every night. Its facilities and high touch points on vehicles are also cleaned regularly throughout the day.
