Several New Brunswick cities are getting updated transit policies starting Monday, June 29.
All transit users in Moncton, Fredericton and Saint John will be required to wear face masks in an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, according to a press release.
Only children under the age of two and those with medical conditions will be exempt from the face mask requirement.
The use of masks will be monitored, the press release says.
Next week, all three cities are also increasing their seating to up to 50 per cent of regular capacity.
The seats will be properly marked, and passengers should expect appropriate distance from other passengers, according to the release.
If passengers fail to comply with the new measures, the cities could impose service reductions, the release says.
The release also encourages passengers to bring and use hand sanitizer while on transit.
For up-to-date service schedules, transit users can check their local transit websites.
