OC Transpo plans to reinforce the Ottawa's rule about wearing facemasks on buses, trains and in transit stations through a city-wide blitz.
General Manager of Transportation Services John Manconi says transit users can expect to see more OC Transpo officials at transit stations in October.
Officials won't necessarily be handing out fines, but once again educating the public about the importance of mask wearing.
"We do have some hot spots where we have problems [with people not wearing masks] and we're going to start narrowing that down and doing some education and continued reminders to everybody," says Manconi.
The transit boss adds, OC Transpo has been working with Translink in Vancouver to figure out how that system has been able to track and report facemask compliance by the public. Ottawa would like to implement a similar system locally.
