Masks or face coverings mandatory on the TTCEffective July 2, masks or face coverings are mandatory when travelling on the TTC, with the exception of:
- Children under two years of age.
- Persons with an underlying medical condition which inhibits the ability to wear a mask or face covering.
- Persons who are unable to place or remove a mask or face covering without assistance.
- TTC employees and agents within an area designated for TTC personnel and not for public access, or within or behind a physical barrier or shield.
- Additional accommodations in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code will also be considered.
To support our customers in this change we will be employing a one-time targeted strategy to distribute one million non-medical masks. Half of the masks will be distributed to TTC customers in the community through a partnership with the City of Toronto Poverty Reduction Office and affiliated agencies. The other half will be distributed by TTC employees through a rotating campaign in TTC stations, in Wheel-Trans and at high traffic bus interchanges. The campaign in stations will run from June 29 to July 8. Please note that the masks are one-time use only (disposable).
The TTC will not be enforcing the use of masks or face coverings. Customers who do not have a mask or face covering will still be permitted to board TTC vehicles. Not all medical or other conditions are visible.

These face coverings are required as a safety precaution as more customers return to the system and physical distancing becomes more challenging. Information on face coverings, including how to create a no-sew face mask.
