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.

Want to find out in real-time how long it will take your bus to arrive at your stop?
- Check out our MyBus App.
Every GOVA Transit bus has a GPS that allows you to track the location of buses travelling to your stop. This allows you to get you to the minute information on bus arrival times.
How to Use the MyBus App
Open the MyBus App on your computer, smart phone or tablet and type your four digit bus stop number into the search box. If you are at your bus stop, the number is displayed on the bus stop sign.
The MyBus App will display the number of minutes until the arrival of the next bus at your stop as well as your route number.
Don’t know your bus stop number?
- Go to MyBus and click on “Stops” to see a list of all bus stop numbers.
- You can also go to MyBus and click on Trip Planner. Google Maps will show where you have to walk to get to your nearest bus stop, which bus route to take, when the next bus will arrive at the stop and when you’ll get to where you want to go!
Please arrive at your bus stop at least five minutes before a scheduled pick-up time. It’s best to plan for unexpected delays while you’re walking.
