COVID-19: Halifax Transit service may be impacted in the coming days

The Halifax Regional Municipality continues to monitor and respond to the rapidly evolving effects of COVID-19.

Based on current staff availability, Halifax Transit anticipates that conventional bus service may be impacted over the coming days.

Before heading out on your trip, all riders are encouraged to check for possible delays and/or cancellations. Halifax Transit will make every effort to share route disruptions as timely as possible via our website and @hfxtransit on Twitter.

Ferry service is expected to continue as scheduled.

Mandatory Masks

In keeping with the public health order, masks continue to be mandatory on all Halifax Transit buses, ferries and terminals.

Please note: children under two and those with a medical reason for not wearing a mask are exempt.

Transit riders are responsible for bringing their own masks.

A number of safety measures are being taken to help reduce the spread of disease, including an increased frequency in wipe-downs of high-touch surfaces.

Halifax Transit has been designated by the Province of Nova Scotia an essential service under the current provincial state of emergency. The two-metre physical distancing and physical gathering limits do not apply to Halifax Transit as stated in the provincial order.

Those who are feeling ill should not use any transit service until their health returns to normal.
