Airlines and trains are not the only modes of travel to drop the mask requirement after Florida struck down Biden public transportation mask mandate. Two ride-share companies’ have also announced they will no longer require customers to wear masks in their vehicles.
Both Uber and Lyft announced their companies policy changes that went into effect Tuesday.
Uber said, “riders and drivers are not required to wear masks when using Uber. However, the CDC still recommends wearing a mask if you have certain personal risk factors and/or high transmission levels in your area.”
Uber also updated their “front-seat policy.” Uber passengers will no longer be required to sit in the back seat. They do however still encourage people to stay in the back if the party size allows it.
Lyft said, “Wearing a mask is now optional for everyone in the car.” Their policy also states that the lack of a mask will no longer be a reason for canceling a ride on the Lyft app.
