Conventional Transit is unable to use the wheelchair lift at this time, and is encouraging all riders requiring use of the wheelchair lift to use Para Transit service. Please contact 613-342-7272 for more information about use of Para Transit.
In addition, the following precautions remain in place:
- A hand sanitizer station available to riders has been installed on every bus
- 40-Ride Passes are to be returned into the fare box by the rider when presented.
- The Transit Driver will issue the rider 40 paper tickets. This removes the need for physical interaction between rider and driver.
- As a safety precaution, additional cleaning of busses will also take place
- The mask mandate in place in the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville is enforced at all times when on Brockville Transit

The City of Brockville continues to closely monitor all of our continuing services to ensure both the safety of our ratepayers as well as our staff.
The Provincial and Federal governments are doing everything they can to preserve our civil liberties. However both levels of government have made it clear that if the behavior of their citizens does not match the need to flatten the curve, they will take further measures.
Do your part to make sure this service is continued safely and only use the transit service when absolutely required. You are asked to stay home – stay in – and be safe. All non-essential outings into our community further the risk of the spread of the virus. If you do need to go out into the community go alone or with one other person if you need assistance.
