GOVA Transit

Update July 7, 2020

In accordance with instructions by Public Health Sudbury & Districts, residents will be required to wear a face covering or non-medical mask when visiting any indoor City facility or when using GOVA Transit, effective Wednesday, July 8, 2020.

Effective Monday, July 13, 2020, service hours will change at GOVA Transit’s downtown kiosk. Service hours are currently 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The new hours of operation will be 7:45 a.m. to 7:45 p.m.

Beginning Monday, June 15, front-door boarding and fare collection will resume on all GOVA Transit buses. Installation of temporary clear plastic shields in the operator area of all buses will physically distance employees and passengers boarding through the front doors and using the fare box.

As recommended by Public Health, use public transit only for necessary travel to work, medical appointments or to purchase essential supplies.

Starting Saturday, April 18, 2020, GOVA Transit will reduce frequency of service on most routes and suspend some routes until further notice.

Until Monday, June 15, fares are temporarily waived to maintain physical distancing from bus operators. Passengers must enter and exit buses through the rear doors except for accessibility purposes.

The Downtown Transit Hub at 9 Elm St. will reopen for sales of GOVA Transit Ride Cards and Passes on Monday, June 8. The indoor waiting area and washrooms remain closed until further notice. Buses continue to pick up and drop off passengers from the outside platforms. Passengers are encouraged to practice physical distancing at bus stops.

31-Day Passes that expired after the suspension of transit fares on March 19, 2020 will be replaced at the Downtown Ticket Kiosk to compensate for number of days remaining.

Reduced schedules and suspended routes will continue through the summer to deploy two buses whenever possible at peak times on heavier travelled routes.
