Just a reminder that they now require wearing face masks in the transit system. From a recent newsletter…
Keeping everyone safer on OC Transpo
As the Ottawa economy reopens and more riders return to transit, OC Transpo has put in place health and safety measures to keep customers and employees as safe as possible.
Masks are mandatory in all enclosed public spaces. The new temporary by-law also covers OC Transpo property, including in buses, trains, stations and platforms, shelters, Para Transpo minibuses, and contracted taxis.
