While a number of Vancouverites are still not practicing safe physical distancing, many others are doing whatever they can to keep themselves and others safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

For high traffic areas, such as bus stops, TransLink has stated that it is adding decals across its system in order to show proper physical distancing. 

Commencing next week, the transportation agencecy states that roughly half the seats on board buses will have signage installed to indicate that those seats are to be left vacant, which will allow for extra space between customers. 

And while they aren't issuing tickets yet, Vancouver Police remind the public that, "Safety is our top priority." As such, you should manintain a distance of six feet apart. 

Have a look at some of examples of physical distancing below. 

TransLink states that it will also issue partial refunds to customers who purchased monthly passes and aren't using them due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The transportation agency confirms in an email that customers will be able to get a partial refund on their monthly Compass Card pass for March. However, they'll have to put forward a request in order to receive the refund.
