VITRAN Mass Transit Bus Operator Training Not to Be Mistaken for Fixed Route Service

The Department of Public Works advises the public that while VITRAN’s fixed-route service remains suspended, residents will notice buses on roadways starting Aug. 31. The buses will be used for mass transit bus operator training purposes only, which will continue until Sept. 4.

VITRAN will continue to provide ADA Paratransit services to passengers traveling for dialysis and medical care. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, VITRAN was forced to suspend its fixed-route transportation services territory-wide to protect its passengers and employees from potential exposure to COVID-19.

The department is urging the community to take personal responsibility and practice good hygiene to reduce their risk of contracting and/or spreading the coronavirus.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
