TTC:Back to school – COVID-19 safety measures in place

September 19, 2020 1:14 PM | David McMahon (Administrator)

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.
