Fares and Passes
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.
