Face Masks Optional on DC Circulator and DC Streetcar

(Washington, DC) — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced today that DC Streetcar and DC Circulator will make face masks optional for its customers, effective immediately. This change comes as a result of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) suspending enforcement in light of a federal judge’s ruling. DDOT implements masking policies based on federal guidance.
