Face masks

Essential information about wearing your mask on the TTC during COVID-19

2. Face mask exemption

Effective July 2, masks 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.
  • Persons who are unable to place or remove a mask or face covering without assistance.
  • Additional accommodations in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code will also be considered.

    *TTC By-law No. 1, s. 3.13(a)

We recognize that not everyone is able to wear a mask, so the TTC has created a card that customers can use as a visual identifier for exemptions. These cards are provided as a courtesy by the TTC; customers who cannot wear a mask are not required to carry them.

Customers who wish to obtain one of these cards or buttons can visit the Customer Service Centre above Davisville Station (1900 Yonge Street) between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Cards are also available at select subway stations, including Kipling, York University, Union and Bloor-Yonge. TTC and Wheel-Trans Customers can also request a card be sent to them by mail by calling TTC Customer Information at 416-393-4636 or Wheel-Trans Customer Service at 416-393-4111.
