CASPER, Wyo. (Release) - Casper Area Transit (ASSIST – door to door service and LINK – fixed-route service) announced face masks will continue to be required of all passengers and staff through March 18, 2022. The announcement follows a directive from the Federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA): “Following the President’s order and announcement regarding efforts to combat the Omicron variant, TSA, in conjunction with the CDC, will extend the face mask requirement for individuals across all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems through March 18, 2022.”

Casper Area Transit has required masks since March of 2020. William Biggs, transit supervisor, said, “given that Casper Area Transit is funded with federal dollars, we are required, as are all such systems nationwide, to abide by the TSA’s masking requirements. We are committed to making sure both ASSIST and LINK continue to function in the safest possible manner.” If masking requirements change, Casper Area Transit will provide updates. More information on Casper Area Transit Service is available at 307.235.8273 for ASSIST (door-to-door service), or 307.235.8287 for LINK (fixed-route service) or the website at www.casperareatransit.org.
