COVID-19

With the reopening of the economy, transit ridership will increase. We've been working closely with Ottawa Public Health to develop a recovery plan to keep customers and staff as safe as possible. Wearing cloth masks, enhanced cleaning schedules, and protective shields for operators are some of the ways we'll keep everyone safer as we return to normal service.

Update: Masks on transit

When masks became mandatory in all stations and OC Transpo vehicles, OC Transpo began giving out free masks to help smooth the transition. Based on your feedback, we'll continue to distribute free masks until the end of July.

Between July 13 to 17, the United Way East Ontario also sold masks at some of our busier stations. The proceeds are helping to provide masks to those most vulnerable in our city.
