GOVA is preparing for a gradual reopening of its regular public transit service in alignment with the first stage of the Province of Ontario’s restart plan.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
GOVA Zone (previously known as "TransCab") extends the reach of public transit to less populated areas of the city. If you live in a GOVA Zone service area, you can use GOVA Zone to connect with conventional transit routes at your local mobility hub. GOVA Zone services are delivered by partner taxi companies.
There is no extra charge to take GOVA Zone. You can pay with cash or use GOVA ride cards and passes.
Some restrictions apply to this service.
