Buses in Woodstock will be back to their normal half-hour schedules as of Monday.

The city confirmed Wednesday that normal schedules, with all routes operating at 30-minutes interval, will resume Monday, July 13.

Seats on the bus will no longer be blocked off, but riders are reminded to practise physical distancing. It’s also “highly recommended” that residents wear masks when riding transit, city officials said. Riders are asked to stay home and avoid taking transit if feeling unwell.

The city also has hand sanitizer on buses, which riders are asked to use on both entrance and exit.

Fares are still waived, and rear boarding is still in effect, the city confirmed.
