Public Transportation

Public transit is open under certain restrictions. You should continue to limit non-essential travel. It is each rider’s responsibility to decide which trips are essential and to keep away from others. Face coverings are required on public transportation.

Trimet: What you need to know

If you are ill

If you have COVID-19 or have symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle aches, headache, chills, or fever) do not take public transit. If you need urgent care, get a ride from someone in your household. If your symptoms are life-threatening call 9-1-1.

Ride Shares

All drivers and passengers in private for-hire transportation such as taxis, Uber, and Lyft, are required to wear masks, face shields, or face coverings. 


Travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Check the Traveler Information section of the CDC’s website for advice on traveling safely.
