"With the introduction of mandatory use of non-medical masks or face coverings by passengers and employees, all MiWay buses will operate at 50 per cent seated capacity to continue to allow for physical distancing."
The move follows recommendations from federal and provincial health officials for people to wear non-medical masks and face coverings wherever physical distancing of two metres is difficult or impossible.
So far the Toronto Transit Commission has continued to strongly recommend passengers wear masks but has not formally instituted a policy that requires the face coverings.
Additional MiWay changes set for July 2 will see fare collection and front door boarding resume.
