Face coverings on public transport-cause for concern?

Neeta from Mount Albert

I use public transport daily to commute to work. On an average, 25% commuters do not wear masks/coverings.
I spoke to some who don't, over past few days. Their casual response, "sorry I don't have one", "forgot"...
As far as I understand wearing of masks is mandatory on all public transport in Auckland, even at level 1. Exceptions do apply.
However with these excuses, what is the point in majority of commuters following rules, whilst a handful of them, just don't bother.
Is is alright to ask them or just leave them alone and change your seat?
Any other suggestions?
Is this complacency or irresponsible attitude- waiting for another outbreak in community?
So annoying
