Detours & Service Changes
Per the order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) all passengers 2 years and older riding a Waukesha Metro bus must wear a face mask (or covering) while on the bus or inside the Transit Center. The face mask (or covering) should cover the passenger’s mouth and nose. Passengers with a disability that prevents them from wearing a face covering are not required to wear a mask. This mask order replaces the previous State mask order and lowers the age of required mask wearing to 2 years old. Free face masks are available at the Transit Center office from 8 am to 5 pm Monday – Friday. Face masks are also available on the bus as well.
