Regina Transit adds additional health and safety protocols - Transit fares waived until further notice
Starting Friday, March 20, customers will be required to use the rear doors for both entering and exiting the bus to help exercise social distance between operators and passengers. The front doors will remain available for those who use a mobility device or require the low floor bus service.
As a result of this change, the fare boxes will be out of service and transit fares are waived for both conventional and paratransit service until further notice.
Regina Transit has increased cleaning protocols to proactively prevent the spread of COVID-19. At the end of each day, all conventional and paratransit buses are being fogged using a hospital grade disinfectant by trained cleaning professionals.
Customers are encouraged to help prevent the spread of the illness by using these best practices:
- Distance yourself from other passengers.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
- Cover your cough or sneeze using the inside of your elbow.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Stay home if you feel sick.
Transit pass and ticket sales will be suspended until further notice, therefore the Transit Information Centre on 11th Avenue will be closed to public effective Saturday, March 21, 2020. Current pass holders will have their passes placed on hold and will receive an option to add an additional month free onto their R-Card upon reactivation. If customers choose to cancel their pass and receive a refund, this can be completed by calling the RideLine. Update June 30: Criteria to determine pass extensions include the remaining time on the pass after fares were waived and the last time the pass was used.
