Stay Safe and Healthy on Transit
We are in this together - we can keep each other safe and healthy by following a few simple steps. Wear a mask or face covering, physically distance yourself from others, consider travelling during off-peak times and continue to follow AHS guidelines. Bus shields and LRT cabs provide excellent protection so Operators do not need to wear masks when in a shielded area. However, Operators and other public facing transit employees will wear masks when going into public areas.

New Bus Stop Signs
In order to prepare for the new bus network redesign, every bus stop will be getting a new sign. These new signs will be installed leading up to the launch of the new bus network on April 25, 2021.

Existing routes will continue to use their existing schedules and stops until April 24, 2021.
