On Oct. 27, 2020 Airdrie City Council mandated that masks are required while using Airdrie Transit services, as social distancing may not always be possible.
Transit riders are required to wear face masks or coverings while onboard all Airdrie Transit vehicles. Masks must be worn before entering any Airdrie Transit vehicle.
Complimentary disposable masks are available to all Airdrie Transit users.
Please see further information on proper mask wearing here Wear a Mask.
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.
