Municipal Public Transit for Essential Trips Under Ontario's Stay-At-Home-Order

April 14, 2021

The Ontario Government is taking important steps to protect public health and safety. The stay-at-home order and public health restrictions are aimed at reducing the number of daily contacts with those outside an immediate household, in response to rapid growth in COVID-19 case numbers. The Town of Huntsville would like to remind passengers of Huntsville Transit to limit travel for essential purposes only; such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services (including getting vaccinated), for outdoor exercise, or for work that cannot be done remotely. If you are traveling on public transit, please remember to abide by COVID-19 safety protocols including mask wearing, physical distancing and handwashing. 

Public transit bus

The Town of Huntsville operates a public transit service that includes two buses which:

  • Are wheelchair-accessible
  • Offer next stop automated announcer system
  • Operate on a route schedule or by pick-up location with 24 hours notice of request
  • Offer courtesy and priority seating for passengers with a disability
  • Have a courtesy seating area for seniors, expectant mothers, adults travelling with infants/small children or any other customer who may benefit from a seat near the front of the bus

Precautionary measures:

  • In order for appropriate social distancing to occur, only 6 riders shall be permitted on Huntsville Transit at any time. This may result in riders needing to be prepared to be flexible on boarding times
  • Until further notice, fares will not be charged and riders will not be required to swipe their transit pass 
  • Daily and frequent touch points will be sanitized

Riders, please:

  • Wear a mask or face coverings (required) 
  • Sanitize hands upon boarding, utilizing the provided hand sanitizer or your own supply
  • Practice physical distancing and attempt to spread out while riding, in an effort to protect and the driver
  • Stay home if feeling unwell, please do not board the Huntsville Transit or Huntsville mobility vehicles until you are well again
