Covid-19 Safety Onboard 

At BC Transit, the safety of our customers and drivers is our top priority, and we continue to follow the guidance of the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafeBC in our response to COVID-19.
Some of the key safety measures currently in place onboard buses include:
  1. Enhanced cleaning and sanitization on buses and at BC Transit facilities:
    • Daily cleaning of high touch areas on all buses 
    • Weekly sanitization of buses 
    • Daily sanitization of handyDART buses
  2. BC Transit will continue to reduce capacity on buses in an effort to create a comfortable transit experience
    • As a result, customers may experience pass ups
    • We encourage riders in communities with NextRide to check for capacity conditions in advance of boarding
  3. In alignment with the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafeBC, the use of face coverings is once again mandatory on all BC Transit buses and at bus stops, effective August 25.
    • Transit Operators working alone behind a full driver door or vinyl panel may wear a face covering out of personal choice.
