As part of an ongoing response to COVID-19, Mayor Drew Dilkens ordered the temporary suspension of Transit Windsor operations, effective the end of normal operating hours on Sunday, March 29th, 2020.

The suspension of operations will last at least until Monday, April 13th, 2020.

The city says that this action represents a precautionary measure to help safeguard the health and wellbeing of transit riders and operators alike, and to further help lower the risk of community infection within the City of Windsor.

“I recognize that despite the health warnings and advice, many in our community still rely on Transit Windsor for their daily needs,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “But, the risks associated with COVID-19 outweigh the inconvenience this shutdown will cause. As the seriousness of this global pandemic continues to become apparent, as Mayor of Windsor, I plan to do everything within my power to protect the health of local residents.”

Transit operations will continue this weekend to ensure that those residents who were planning to use public transit to acquire essential goods can continue to rely on this service until end-of-day Sunday.

Enhanced cleaning measures have been in place for several weeks and will continue in the days ahead.
