The TSA has extended the mask mandate for all forms of public transportation in the country through January 18, 2022. Regardless of vaccination status or any other local orders in effect, masks will continue to be required at all Hop station platforms, shelters and on board the streetcars. For your convenience, free masks are available on board the vehicles should you not have one of your own.
In addition to requiring masks of all passengers, we’re also doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19 through a rigorous cleaning protocol that includes twice-daily sanitization of all streetcars and station platforms. In addition, all surfaces of our vehicles, stations and maintenance spaces, including the hand straps, seats and boarding doors, have been treated with an anti-microbial protective coating to minimize the potential for the virus to spread.
Here’s what else we’re doing to keep the Hop clean and safe, and how you can help:
o As of Aug. 1, 2021, The Hop has returned to its full schedule of operations, with service every 15 minutes during peak times and every 20 minutes during off peak hours and on weekends. The current schedule can be viewed here.
