  1. proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 with an FDA- or WHO-authorized vaccine;

  3. an FDA-authorized antigen test performed on a specimen collected within six hours of boarding.

You will be required to show this documentation, along with a photo ID matching the name on the reservation, to the driver before you board your bus. A photo, photocopy, or screenshot, or an electronic device is acceptable. This documentation will provide access to the bus but will not be collected for record-keeping.
