Pursuant to Governor Newsom's Executive Order N-33-20 (19 March), travel is solely

for essential employees, and for members of the public engaging in essential needs.

For additional travel/transit mandates, please consult your local county health order.

With Governor Gavin Newsom's 18 June State Health Order establishing a statewide face-covering mandate, all 58 California counties now require a face covering for service on public transit - while using transit services, and even waiting in line for this service.

As of 08 July*, the following transit systems are not collecting and/or enforcing fares:**
