Protect yourself and others, Wear Masks on Transit buses!

Transit riders wear masks following recommendation from City Hall to help keep Transit Service safe.

City Councillor & IRPW Chairperson Matt Allard, Functional Transit Winnipeg  Derek Koop, ATU Local 1505 President Romeo Ignacio and Executive Vice President James Van Gerwen jointly held a press conference to speak on the City's Safe Transit Service initiatives and the need for a dedicated emergency and permanent funding from the Provincial and Federal governments to keep public transit moving in the right direction on Manitoba's roadmap to economic recovery.

The group also took a ride on transit buses to hand out masks and encourage riders to always wear the mask while taking public transit to help keep everyone safe and protect against the spread of the virus as Winnipeg Transit resumes full service a week after the province entered phase four of the economic recovery.
