It says accommodations will be allowed for children under the age of 5 and those that can’t wear a face covering for health reasons.

"We recognize the advice from health professionals, including Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, has been to wear face coverings when physical distancing is not possible including on transit vehicles," it said in a release Aug. 6. "Customers have indicated making the use of face coverings mandatory will create a more comfortable environment."
