Posted on Friday June 26, 2020

Effective Thursday, July 2, 2020, Yellowknife Transit will resume its regular summer service schedule, relax certain restrictions and resume collecting fares, in line with the GNWT’s recent ‘Emerging Wisely’ announcement.

Although buses will have a maximum capacity of 24 people, it may not always be possible to maintain a physical distance of two metres while using Yellowknife Transit. The City strongly recommends all passengers wear face coverings while using Yellowknife Transit, for the mutual protection of you, your fellow passengers and transit staff. Passengers must enter using the front doors and exit using the rear doors.  

To further reduce contact between drivers and passengers, the City will be replacing Punch Passes with sheets of tickets. These will be available for purchase beginning Wednesday, July 22, 2020. Anyone who currently has a punch pass who boards a Yellowknife transit vehicle in July can exchange their Punch Pass for a July monthly pass. Information on fares and purchasing locations are available at www.yellowknife.ca/transit under the Fares section.

The City would like to thank residents for their ongoing patience and cooperation as staff work to resume services in a planned and safe manner, creating a comfortable and respectful environment on board for everyone. As facilities and services begin to reopen, changes may occur with little notice. All updates will be communicated with the public, via the City webpage www.yellowknife.ca and on social media. Residents can also contact the City by emailing CustomerService@yellowknife.ca or calling 920-5600.
