Mandatory use of masks

Since 6 July 2020, all customers must wear a mask to protect their fellow passengers and themselves during their journey in trains, buses, trams, ships and cable cars. The only exceptions to the mask requirement are children up to the age of twelve years and persons who are not allowed to wear a mask for medical reasons.

Eating and drinking is still allowed on public transport - during this time the mask can be removed. In order to protect fellow travellers and themselves, customers are responsible for ensuring that they are equipped with masks when travelling by public transport.
