Masks and Public Transportation

The Transportation Security Administration is extending the face mask requirement until Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022,  This requires individuals across all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircrafts, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail system to wear masks. Transportation operators must also require all passengers to wear masks when boarding, disembarking and for the duration of the travel.  

This Order must be followed by all passengers on public transportation (e.g., airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subway, buses, taxis, ride-shares) traveling into, within or out of the United States as well as transportation operators (e.g., crew, drivers, conductors and other works involved in the operation of transportation.)

People must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose when awaiting, boarding, traveling on or disembarking public transportation.

FOR COVID-19 Vaccinations 

You will need to schedule your trip at least two and a half hours before your vaccination time.  To assure you have a trip, better to schedule a day or two in advance.  

  • Make sure you tell them this is a COVID-19 vaccination trip.   
  • Schedule your return trip as a Will Call.  

As soon as you have your vaccination and are in the 15 - 30 minute post vaccination waiting area, call Dependacare and schedule your Will Call return trip.  They have up to an hour to pick you up, once you call.


If you don't have the $6 co-pay for the trip, please contact our office at 804-706-2796, we may be able to help.

@ChesterfieldVA Thank you for serving our citizens with mobility needs. My mother can only be transported via wheelchair van. In past holidays private services promised to come but didn’t show up. Your service through Dependacare was amazing & on time! We value this initiative.
