Keeping Saskatoon Transit safe and clean
What we're doing to keep Saskatoon Transit safe and clean during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Keeping Saskatoon Transit safe and clean is our top priority. We continue to adjust our procedures, in collaboration with the Saskatchewan Health Authority, as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
With the increasing spread of COVID-19 in our community and the prevalence of the highly contagious Delta variant, to protect the health and safety of our staff, local Medical Health Officer and City OH&S recommended we take a more assertive approach to protect staff and customer safety. Effective October 4, medical-grade masks will be mandatory for Operators, behind the vinyl barrier, when operating buses.
- Since March, Saskatoon Transit has been performing additional cleaning and disinfection with a focus on touch and grab points, such as buttons, handles and straps.
- Saskatoon Transit takes the health and safety of its employees and customers very seriously. At this time, the direction from the Saskatchewan Health Authority is that no additional measures are required. Saskatoon Transit continues to be a safe method of travel.
