Starting on Tuesday night, public transportation makes a comeback.

During the transition back to normal, buses and trains will run from Sunday at 5 a.m. to Thursday 8 p.m., at which time operations will again be suspended until the following Sunday morning.

Travelers are advised to consult schedules updated to reflect the reactivation of routes as they occur.

Passengers will be required to wear face masks for the duration of their rides. The first rows will be cordoned off and only 20 people will be allowed on each bus at a time, in order to preserve social distancing.
