Operate at normal service
levels while keeping you safe.
All health and safety measures are in line with provincial and federal guidelines. As part of the recovery plan, the St. Catharines Transit Commission will restore normal service levels and create more space for customers on buses.
The Niagara Regional Council passed a temporary face covering by-law which requires face coverings in enclosed public spaces, and on regional and municipal transit during the COVID-19 pandemic. This by-law is to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in indoor public spaces as more businesses and services being to reopen.
With the by-law, the Niagara Region has made the wearing of masks on public transit mandatory. St Catharines Transit is reminding its riders, and those visiting its facilities, to wear a mask or face covering. Masks must be worn before entering buses, terminals, Paratransit buses and contracted taxis. Click here for additional resources.
