Transit service changes due to COVID-19

Service changes- effective August 29, 2021

Effective August 29- Service changes will be made to all routes. Service frequency on most routes will increase to 30-minutes between 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on weekdays and Saturdays.

Routes and schedules

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Thunder Bay Transit will be operating adjusted service levels until further notice to best meet fluctuating ridership levels and customer demands. We would like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this time.

The City’s decision to adjust transit hours and frequency is being done in an effort to be vigilant in the City’s response and planning related to declining ridership due to COVID-19. Changes are also being implemented in order to create flexibility to re-allocate additional resources to some of Thunder Bay Transit’s busier routes.

By-reservation transit service - Route 4

Beginning Monday, April 6, 2020, Route 4 evening service hours will be suspended, and replaced with a dedicated by-reservation evening transit service.

Riders will be required to request their travel arrangements at least one (1) day prior to their trip.

Please contact Thunder Bay Transit’s LIFT+ booking line between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at 345-0777 at least one (1) day prior to your trip to book a reservation.

To allow for physical distancing, vans will carry a maximum of three customers at a time.

Seat belts must be worn on all LIFT+ vans.

Help protect drivers and riders

Members of the public are being reminded:

  • use transit for essential trips only (essential workplaces, medical appointments and grocery shopping) 
  • travel directly to your essential destination, do not make unnecessary stops
  • do not use transit if you are feeling unwell
  • board from the back of the bus unless you require the front doors/ramp for accessibility
  • the seats directly behind the bus operator's compartment are not in service
  • practice physical distancing on board the bus
    • stay behind the yellow line
    • maintain a minimum 1-2 metre distance from other riders (2 metres being preferred)

We thank you for your help in stopping the spread of COVID-19 while we continue to operate this essential service for those that need it.
