Transit COVID-19 Updates

Updated September 17, 2021

Masks and physical distance on transit

Wearing a mask or face covering is mandatory on all public vehicles, such as buses, LRT, taxis, motorcoaches, shuttles and ride-share services. Starting September 3, wearing a mask or face covering will also be mandatory in all indoor public spaces, such as transit centres and LRT platforms. Bus shields and LRT cabs provide protection, so Transit Operators are not required to wear a mask when in a shielded area.

Physical distancing of two metres is now required in transit centres and LRT stations.

No proof of vaccination required

Because transit needs to be accessed by the public for daily living purposes, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is not required for transit riders on ETS buses, LRT, On Demand Transit and DATS.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

We are continuing our daily enhanced cleaning and disinfecting on buses, LRT, DATS vehicles, transit centres, LRT stations as well as high touch areas.

Germ-Killing Technology on Transit

Germ-killing LRT Seats

In early 2021, new germ-killing seats were installed on two-thirds of the LRT fleet (the newer train models). These seats have an additive in the plastic that can reduce up to 99.9 percent of germs (that is, bacteria, fungus and viruses) within 2 hours. This additive is a one-time application that is incorporated into the plastic and is not a coating. It should last the entire life of the seat.
