As kids head back to school, it is important you know what
we have been doing at the TTC to make sure our transit
system is clean and safe for your children. We are all in
this together and we want to let you know what changes
we have made on our end, and also to remind you of
some steps that you can take.
The safety of our customers – especially your children –
remains our priority:
- If your kids are sick – please keep them home. We
have signs in all our stations reminding people to stay
home if they are unwell.
- We implemented a mandatory face covering policy at
the beginning of July, which requires everyone to wear
a face covering or mask if they are able. We know there
are certain exceptions to this policy, including children
under two or those with medical conditions who are
unable to wear a face covering or put on or take off a
face covering by themselves.
- We have announcements on all of our buses and in
all our stations reminding customers that they are
required to wear a face covering or mask when
travelling on the TTC.
- We are disinfecting and cleaning all of our stations,
buses, streetcars, trains and Wheel-Trans vehicles
several times a day. We are especially focused on
common touch and grab points, such as buttons,
railings, handles and straps.
- We have installed hand sanitizer dispensers at all of
our stations and on our streetcars.
- We have signage posted in all of our stations, including
markers on the floor and at the fare gates to help people
enter and exit the station. We also have decals on all
subway platforms as well as on the seats in our vehicles.
- We have committed to handing out one million masks to
our riders. We have employees in our stations handing
out disposable, one-time-use masks to customers who
do not have one. This will continue throughout the fall.
