Masks no longer mandatory on transit - keep the mask close at hand and put it on when the bus begins to fill up

Masks are no longer required on the Burlington Transit system but they are recommended.

Early in the pandemic wen saw the Mayor wearing a mask – supporting the Health drive to take every possible precaution.

Since the Province of Ontario lifted the mask mandate for public transit on June 11, 2022, you no longer need to wear a mask on our buses. We still recommend that you do wear a mask, especially when the bus is busy or you’re not able to keep at least 2 metres from other riders.

Please treat each other with respect, tolerance and kindness. We respect the right of each rider to decide whether masking is right for them or not and ask you to do the same.

  • In our 70’s masks will likely be part of our lives forever. Trudeau and others we have heard of tested for Covid again. We like the protection they give for all the other viruses out there. Had far less colds and flu since started wearing them However totally agree it is a personal issue and personal choice always should be respected.
