The State of California requires face coverings to be worn on public transit

The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC), has promptly adhered to recent state requirements released by Governor Gavin Newsom. The mandate requires face coverings to be worn state-wide in public settings, including public transportation. If a VCTC Intercity bus rider doesn’t have a mask, one will be provided.

“VCTC is committed to keeping both our riders and drivers safe,” said Darren Kettle, VCTC executive director. “Thankfully, we had already seen compliance with the CDC’s recommendation to wear face coverings, so we do not foresee an issue with this update.”
