The City of Laredo requires “all persons two years of age and holder to wear some form of covering over their nose and mouth…at all times” this order includes public transit vehicles. El Metro and El Lift Service provide essential mobility services and want to remind the public that facemask and or covering it is still strictly enforced upon boarding. Anyone not observing the City of Laredo orders may not be allowed to board or may be asked to exit the vehicle or facility. Operators may remind passengers not wearing a face covering of the new requirement; posted signs are placed on all buses, vans, and facilities.
Customers should wear their face coverings while waiting at the bus stop, when inside a transit center, and while aboard buses or vans. This order does not replace the need to maintain physical distance—at least 6 feet between you and the person next to you—and for that passengers are to respect posted signs on designated seats. Limited capacity remains to only 10 passengers per bus route.
EL Metro is requiring customers and employees to ride transit in accordance with all State, County, and City of Laredo Orders. Our commitment remains to provide safe and reliable mobility to everyone taking essential trips aboard El Metro and El Lift vans.
