New York City Public Transit Riders Who Don't Mask Up Will Face Fines Starting Monday

New York City public transit passengers who refuse to wear masks will be fined $50 starting Sept. 14.

Riders are already required to wear face coverings on subways, buses and railroads. Officials hope the new penalty will improve compliance and bring hesitant would-be passengers back on board.
