The new requirement comes from the CDC’s recommendation for commuters during the pandemic.
You gonna have to wear a mask if you want to catch a ride with COTA.
The Central Ohio Transit Authority announced Saturday that starting Wednesday, April 15, customers will be required to wear masks covering their face on all transit vehicles. The mask MUST cover your nose and mouth. They can be medical, homemade, scarves or bandanas.
