Fares and Passes
COVID-19 Update, March 26, 2020, 12:08 p.m.
The Downtown Transit Hub building is closed to the public. A number of changes have been made to Gova operations to encourage physical distancing. Riders should only use Gova for necessary travel, as recommended by Public Health.
The Downtown Transit Hub building, including the kiosk, (9 Elm St.) will be temporarily closed to the public as of 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 20. Buses will continue to pick up and drop off passengers on the platform.
Riders are reminded to board and exit buses through the rear doors only. Anyone with accessibility needs can still use the front doors.
Bus fares are being temporarily waived, as fare box locations are not favourable to social distancing guidelines.
The front seats of each bus have been blocked off to maintain required space around the operator. Riders are asked to stay behind the yellow line at the front of the bus to ensure proper social distancing.
Gova Transit is performing additional cleaning and disinfection of all buses with a focus on touch and grab points, such as buttons, railings, handles and straps.
More information regarding already activated March 31-day passes will be shared once finalized.
Information on bus routes and schedules is available online at www.greatersudbury.ca/transit or by calling 311.
