While the CDC and State of Michigan have lifted mask requirements for vaccinated people in public, Saginaw Transit Authority Regional Services (STARS) and other Public Transit Systems still require passengers to wear masks while riding. The CDC, TSA, and Homeland Security have not changed mask rules or recommendations for public transit.

“While I applaud this progress, I ask the community to respect our drivers and riders, continue to be safe, and mask up on all public transportation services even when fully vaccinated,” said Glenn Steffens, Executive Director.
