Branson’s Mask Ordinance Ends, but Face Coverings Still Required on Public Transit

The new covered trolley stop sits at the Pacific Street entrance to Liberty Plaza

Branson’s city-wide face covering requirement to help protect visitors and residents against the Coronavirus ended on April 16, 2021. While there’s no longer a city ordinance, you’ll find that many Branson businesses and attractions are still encouraging social distancing and masking based on their individual circumstances.

As Branson’s only public transit system, the free Ride Sparky trolleys are somewhat unique because they are subject to a nationwide order by the CDC requiring masking on all public transit systems. As a result, the Downtown Branson trolley drivers and passengers are still required to wear suitable face coverings while riding the trolleys.
