Fredericton Transit schedule changes effective March 20, 2020:

As a precautionary measure against COVID-19, the public is asked to use Transit for essential travel only. For the safety of our Operators and other passengers, please stay home if you don’t need to be out!

Fredericton Transit will cease collecting bus fares and require passengers to enter and exit through the rear of the bus beginning March 20, 2020.

Each bus will have a maximum of nine passengers at any one time. Extra buses will be on standby for additional service support if required.  Passengers taking extended trips with no clear destination may be refused service.

These changes are being implemented in support of the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer of Health of New Brunswick.

Reduced service hours will be provided during peak travel times with a focus on essential travel only.

COVID-19

Fredericton Transit continues to operate.  Monitor this page for changes or updates.  Fredericton Transit and the City of Fredericton are following the lead of the Chief Medical Officer of New Brunswick in response to COVID-19.  The safety of our passengers continues to be our priority.  We have implemented the following steps to reduce potential risk and spread of COVID-19:

  1. In addition to our regular cleaning program, we have increased the cleaning of high touch surfaces;
  2. Additional improvements are underway to further increase the frequency of cleaning high touch surfaces while buses are in service;
  3. Transit Operators have been advised to wash their hands whenever possible, to wear gloves if they choose, and to take precautionary steps according to the provincial Department of Health’s recommendations;
  4. Signage has been placed on buses advising passengers to exercise safe social distancing by maintaining a 2 metre distance from Transit Operators while buses are in service; and,
  5. Hand sanitizer dispensers have been ordered and will be installed at the entrance of buses for public use.


A hallmark of modern, forward-thinking cities is the provision of viable transportation alternatives. When residents can choose from a number of transportation options—choices beyond driving—the city becomes more vibrant, diverse, and healthy. It’s why effective, efficient, enjoyable public transit is a top priority for the City of Fredericton.

The City of Fredericton Transit Division operates 28 buses on twelve routes, running Monday to Saturday, from 6:15 am until 11:00 pm (except on Holidays). The focus of Fredericton’s transit service is safe, reliable, and convenient transit for all residents.

In addition to standard route service, the Transit Division operates chartered busing to various school, tour, and conference groups in and around Fredericton, and a parallel service, Para Transit, for persons with mobility challenges.
