Everyone is required to wear a cloth mask before entering a station, shelter, or boarding an OC Transpo vehicle.
Ottawa Public Health recommends that residents wear cloth masks or alternatives that cover the nose and mouth while taking transit. Visit Ottawa Public Health’s website for tips about how to wear a mask properly, where to get a reusable cloth mask, and more.
Starting in late April, permanent operator barriers are being installed on OC Transpo's bus fleet. Over 750 articulated, double-decker, and 40-foot buses will be equipped with an operator barrier by the end of August 2021.
Operator barriers, also known as shields, improve the workplace safety of our bus operators and enhance the overall safety of our customers.
