About 95 per cent of CTrain riders are wearing masks, as required by the City bylaw, and 80 per cent are wearing masks on buses, according to Calgary Transit’s latest count. This exceeds what was expected with the introduction of mandatory masks, Bradley said, and the hope is that riders will continue to comply.
“We’re really pleased how people have stepped up with mask compliance. They are keeping workers and the community safe. We’re happy to be increasing our service but, as always, we will be monitoring it and making any changes that need to be made,” said Bradley.
On Aug. 17, seating for Calgary buses returned to full capacity. That means that all seats can be be occupied, but the standing room on a bus is considered overcapacity.
