Federal law now requires that masks or face coverings be properly worn at all times when waiting for, boarding or riding public transit. This applies to Hop station platforms, shelters and on board the streetcars. For your convenience, free disposable 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 promoting social-distancing on board the vehicles and executing 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:
