Ready to Ride Again: COVID Safety on Transit

Public transit has always helped people get to their jobs, friends, families and everything else Toronto has to offer. It’s still doing that – now safer than ever.

 

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Metrolinx (GO Transit & UP Express) have taken significant steps to protect riders across the Toronto region from COVID-19 transmission. To date, there have been no cases in Toronto where transit has been contact-traced as the source of transmission.

 

In partnership with the Toronto Region Board of Trade’s We’re Ready Toronto campaign to welcome people back downtown safely and sustainably, TTC and Metrolinx are sharing the ways they’ve made it safer to ride public transit.  Please click here to learn more about COVID safety measures on the TTC and Metrolinx.

Seasonal bird migrations in Ontario last from March through June, and continue again from the end of August to the beginning of November.  It is common for flocks of birds to be attracted to lights from buildings and, sadly, millions of birds are injured or killed due to collisions with buildings (source: flap.org). While we understand that manypeople continue to work from home, please assist us where you can to help make our QuadReal office buildings flight-safe for birds.

 

The following are some simple and helpful techniques we're doing that you too can do for both your home – especially in high-rise towers - and office settings:

·When working late and, when localized light controls are available, please use task lighting (table or desk lamps) instead of overhead lights

·Close window curtains and blinds at night

·Turnoff non-critical exterior lighting during spring and fall bird migration seasons

·If surrounding greenery is reflected in your windows, consider a bird-deterrent window solution or move greenery away from windows

·Report a fallen bird at your home or workplace by calling Flap Canada at: 416.366.3527 or [email protected]
