Masks Mandatory when Travelling on MiWay and Fares Reinstated Starting July 2

Effective July 2, wearing a non-medical mask or face covering will be mandatory when travelling on MiWay, at stops and transit terminals to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19. Children under the age of two, people with disabilities or other medical conditions that prevent them from wearing any mask will not be required to wear one. Fare collection and front door boarding for all customers will also resume on July 2. 

In addition, MiWay will reopen the City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT) fares booth on June 24 to provide customers with the opportunity to purchase  PRESTO  fares in advance of the resumption of fare collection. The booth will be open Monday to Friday from 11:15 a.m. to 7 p.m. until further notice with appropriate physical distancing measures in place. PRESTO customers are strongly encouraged to load their cards  online  to avoid congestion at the terminal. 

With the introduction of mandatory use of non-medical masks or face coverings by passengers and employees, all MiWay buses will operate at 50 per cent seated capacity to continue to allow for physical distancing. For more information, visit  miway.ca/coronavirus  .
