Increased capacity on City transit buses

Yellowknife Education District No. 1 has been advised that the City of Yellowknife will be increasing capacity on all public transit buses effective November 12, 2020 after an exemption was granted by the Office of the Chief Public Health Officer. Physical distancing measures implemented earlier this year resulted in a significant reduction in capacity on City buses. This exemption should be helpful for students who have previously been unable to board buses that were running at capacity.
