COVID-19 Update

While great progress has been made in the Province of Ontario, we all are still facing the continuing impacts of COVID-19. The health and safety of you and your family, our crews, volunteers and staff are our number one priority. While we closely monitor the daily government reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 there is a substantial difference between being legally able to open our operation under Stage 3 in Ontario and being able to do so safely taking into consideration the previously mentioned concerns. To that end, we will not be offering our regular and special passenger services at this time until it is safe to do so.
