As of September 22nd, 2020 Ontario Northland will require all customers to wear a face covering or non-medical mask at all times when on a bus. Drivers will be required to wear a face covering or non-medical mask at all times when they are not driving the bus (e.g. passenger loading, walking through the bus, etc.). This expands the scope of the current requirement of wearing a mask while boarding or disembarking a bus, implemented in July.
The health and safety of passengers and employees is our number one priority. Passengers can expect increased safety and hygiene practices while travelling on our service.
- All passengers will be required to wear a non-medical mask or face covering at all times. Children under the age of two (2) and people with difficulty breathing unrelated to COVID-19 should not use face coverings or non-medical masks.
- The buses have enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols, including intense cleaning and disinfecting after use.
- An anti-microbial spray has been applied to all buses.
- Limiting the number of seats available per bus to ensure physical distancing.
Passengers are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance by visiting ontarionorthland.ca or by calling 1-800-461-8558.
