Effective immediately, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will not enforce its mask-related security directives.
TSA also is withdrawing SD 1582/84-21-01E, which was issued on April 15, 2022, and was scheduled to take effect on April 19, 2022.
Trans-Bridge Lines follows all TSA directives and will no longer require masks on our motorcoaches.
Drivers and passengers have the option of wearing face coverings if they so choose.
Due to a Florida court ruling, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) January 29, 2021, Order requiring
masks on public transportation conveyances and at public transportation hubs is no longer in effect.
The CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.
TSA’s withdrawal of its directive does not preclude a transportation operator from imposing its own face mask requirements.
The Port Authority will continue to follow the guidance of the New York and New Jersey public health authorities
with respect to mask mandates at its public transportation facilities.
Per current New York public health guidance, the mask mandate remains in effect for the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal.

- VIEW HOW AIR IS CIRCULATED ON TRANS-BRIDGE LINES’ MOTORCOACHES
Trans-Bridge Lines utilizes the MERV 8 air filter. The MERV 8 filter provides protection in capturing respiratory droplets and fine particles in the air. There is an emphasis on optimal air quality, as cabin air in the motorcoach is completely exchanged with fresh, outside air approximately every ten minutes. There are two air systems – one for the passenger seating area and another in the driver’s cockpit. Trans-Bridge Lines also follows a cleaning checklist, which concentrates on the visible touchpoint areas of the coach, including handrails, door latches, driver’s area, and restroom surfaces, including door handles. This cleaning is conducted by our wash bay crew. Our protocols provide best practices for both our passengers and employees
