City Transit Temporarily Suspended
March 20, 2020
 

The City of Thompson will be temporarily discontinuing transit service after Friday, March 20, 2020, in line with precautions to control the spread of COVID-19.

Over the past 3 days, we’ve seen a remarkable reduction in transit ridership as people are following provincial self-distancing protocols, and the schools are promoting keeping students at home. As students make up the bulk of transit ridership in Thompson, transit service will continue for the remainder of the day.

Reports from other communities have suggested that where transit service is partially reduced, the density of riders increases, which poses a significant public health risk during a pandemic.


Regular riders who have questions should email reception@thompson.ca with the subject line "Transit”. City administration will respond to your questions.
