Not going to lie I wish Amtrak and others would do this. After a certain amount of time on board a train the mask can make it harder to breathe for some:
In July, the SSL introduced a mask-optional car for those passengers who choose to not wear a mask as a response to complaints from mask-compliant passengers. Pursuant to state and local orders, certain passengers with mask exemptions (including medical/health issues) are not required to wear a mask nor are they required to move to the mask-optional car.
