Transportation Guidelines

For general workplace guidelines, please refer to COVID-19 Workplace Information. All businesses operating in Saskatchewan must be in compliance with these guidelines. The information below provides specific guidelines for the transportation industry.

  • Public transportation, including paratransit, should increase the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting all areas of public contact. Encourage members of the public to practise two-metre separation.
  • Taxi and rideshare drivers should carry passengers in the back seats only. As much as possible, passengers should practise physical distancing within the vehicle. If one does not already exist, employers should consider installing a shield or barrier between the front and back seats, or around the driver.
  • Please refer to the Public Health Order related to Face Coverings for masking requirements.
  • Limit contact with passengers. Direct passengers to load their own luggage, preferably in the trunk of the vehicle.
  • Clean and disinfect taxi/rideshare vehicles regularly, paying close attention to surfaces frequently touched by passengers, such as door handles, arm rests, seatbelts and buttons for windows and locks.
  • Air flow in the vehicle should not be set to recirculating. However, if a passenger is being transported to/from a health care facility and/or is displaying respiratory symptoms, keep the windows open.
  • Place signage with information on proper coughing/sneezing etiquette and hand hygiene where it is clearly visible to passengers.
  • Carpooling or sharing rides to work should be discontinued. If carpooling must occur, physical distancing should be maintained as much as possible, including having people sit in the backseat.
  • In situations where it is impossible to maintain a two-metre distance between workers in a vehicle, the following adaptations should be made:
    • Encourage the same workers to ride in the same company vehicle every shift.
    • Workers should occupy the same seats in a vehicle for the entire shift.
    • Avoid physical contact and sharing materials or equipment.
    • Vehicles should be frequently cleaned and disinfected during the shift, as well as between each shift. This includes commonly touched surfaces, such as the steering wheel, gear shift, dash, radio, door handles (interior and exterior), rearview mirror, armrest and seatbelts.
  • Effective November 19, 2020, entertainment transportation (i.e. party buses, group limousines and recreational vehicles) is no longer permitted.
