Wondering if the white vans that take workers etc around area are still running? Any safety protocols in place as I remember being crammed in them! Also wondering if taxi drivers have to wear masks?

When you talk about 'white vans', I think you must be talking about colectivos. Yes, they're still running. I have never seen any Covid protocols in place and people are still crammed in as before. Taxi drivers all have masks. Some wear them all the time, others will wear them if you ask them to.

Smart move. I've been taking the local buses and also taxis a lot in the last few months and have been tested regularly. I wear a mask, I use sanitizer when getting on and off the bus or in and out of the taxi, and it's been working for me. But for now, I'm skipping the colectivos, which is a shame as I think they're great!

While I completely agree with Harry about not taking the Combies or collectivos now,

I’m happy to say that I do see some mask compliance here around Bucerías and Nuevo. My guess is the driver is relying on the riders efforts. Best to taxi or Uber to be safe.

Do you have to wear a mask on buses?

Everyone is supposed to wear a mask on buses. From my experience this year, and I've taken the bus between Sayulita and PV about 15 times in the last few months, I would say about 75% of people wear masks.
