Face Masks Required on Transit

Per the governor's updated executive order, wearing a mask on transit vehicles is required. Up until this order, passengers were encouraged to wear masks, but may have been refused transportation if not wearing a mask. This updated order requires Tar River Transit to refuse transport to any passengers without masks covering their nose and mouth.
