• Wash your hands frequently; including any opportunities before you board any city bus.

The use of non-medical masks or face coverings are strongly recommended to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Airdrie Transit encourages our customers to wear non-medical masks when physical distancing may not be possible. Complimentary disposable masks are available to all Airdrie Transit users.

Wearing a mask on transit helps to keep your community safe!
We're working hard to thoroughly clean all of our vehicles, to ensure we are providing safe transportation for our customers. We have enhanced cleaning and sanitization on all buses which includes frequent wiping of high touch points such as seats, stanchions and doors.
The wellbeing of our operators and customers is a priority for us. We are following the guidance of the Chief Medical Officer of Health by installing bus operator protection barriers on all buses to support physical distancing.
