Town of Penetanguishene

Updated: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Impacts on Municipal Services

UPDATE: Monday March 23, 2020: Transit resumes normal service and is now free for all riders until further notice.


March 23, 2020 - 9:00 a.m. 

The Mid-Pen Transit Service has no resumed it's normal service and will be free for all riders until further notice.

Not all Mid-Pen Transit Service buses have two doors, but riders are asked to please board and de-board using the rear entrance of the transit buses, when it's an option. This will help ensure more social distancing with our transit drivers. Riders with disabilities may still use the front door if needed.

The Town would also like to continue to stress the importance that all residents who have returned from travelling follow the self-isolation protocol for 14 days. Whether you are a snowbird or a spring breaker, regardless of your age you must follow this protocol to ensure that the virus doesn't spread throughout our community. Even if you have no symptoms, you can still pass the virus along to someone. If you've arrived home from travel and need groceries, call a friend or family member to drop some things off. We are in this together and we all need to work as a team! ?
