Port Authority Threatens Face Mask Scofflaws With $50 Fine At Airports, PATH Trains – Gothamist

The Port Authority is implementing a new $50 fine for anyone who isn’t wearing a face covering inside of the transportation agency’s facilities starting Monday.

The Port Authority says the “primary emphasis” remains on getting travelers to voluntarily wear a mask, but the fine would aid existing COVID-19 face covering rules in New York and New Jersey.

“This move is part of agency’s commitment to supporting the New York and New Jersey state requirements on mask wearing in transportation facilities,” the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said in a release.

All Port Authority facilities will fall under the new rule—including LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark airports; PATH stations and trains; AirTrain stations and trains; the Midtown Bus Terminal; the GWB Bus Station; and the Oculus in Lower Manhattan.
