Useful Tips for Traveling on GOVA
The GOVA downtown Transit Hub waiting area has reopened to the public. The area was closed last week in response to the Province declaring a second state of emergency.
Public Health supports the re-opening. A maximum of 25 people are allowed in the building at one time to allow for social distancing. Riders are encouraged to plan ahead for their trips and dress warm. They're also reminded to protect themselves by wearing a mask and staying a safe distance from others.
- Residents are required to wear a face covering or non-medical mask when visiting any indoor City facility or when riding GOVA Transit under the authority of of the provincial Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. Widespread use of face coverings by all persons decreases the spread of respiratory droplets. Certain exemptions apply.

Extended detours can now be found on the Routes and Schedules page with the affected routes.
Wear a face covering
Face coverings are required on GOVA, where it may be difficult to maintain a physical distance of two metres from others.
When travelling on GOVA, practice physical distancing and spread out as much as possible.
Waiting at a bus stop or platform? Maintain a physical distance of two metres between yourself and other riders.
Practice good hand hygiene
Wash your hands often.
If water is not available use hand sanitizer.
Practise proper cough etiquette
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues into the garbage right away.
If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
Don’t touch your face!
If you are not feeling well or you think you have Covid-19, please stay home.
Adopt new habits
If you can, avoid the crowds by travelling during off-peak periods. Always carry hand sanitizer and a spare face covering. We also recommend that you avoid eating and drinking while on public transit.
