Starting July 1, masks will move from being mandatory to recommended on Metro Vancouver’s public transit system. This change is due to Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, which removes the requirement for masks in indoor settings across the province.
Customers are encouraged to continue wearing masks on transit as a precautionary measure to protect themselves, fellow customers, and employees.
TransLink will continue to follow the guidance of experts and senior levels of government. TransLink are working closely with our provincial health officials, Transport Canada, and WorkSafeBC to ensure that TransLink are meeting all safety and regulatory requirements.
Transit has been a safe and reliable way to get around our region throughout the pandemic. TransLink will continue to follow our safe operating guidelines, which includes increased cleaning, improved sanitization measures and thorough ventilation on the vehicles.
As our economy gradually reopens, TransLink is ready to support BC’s Restart Plan and welcome customers back to the world-class transit system.
Customers may notice a delay in our signage as TransLink update decals recommending masks across our transit system starting July 1.
