Summary Translation: The ActiveTO plan is under development in Toronto to help people move more while maintaining social distance. Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) spokesperson Stuart Green said the transit service does not have immediate plans to increase service levels despite the expected increase in ridership. The transit agency has been operating service levels at between 70% and 80% of regular capacity throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, even as ridership plunged by at least 80% and about 1,200 employees had to be temporarily laid off. Earlier, it was reported that Toronto is beginning to reduce the restrictions that have kept residents at home for most of the past two months and that the TTC is preparing to increase passenger numbers. Ideas are being considered, such as ordering passengers to wear masks, modifying stations to allow distancing, and asking employers to hire employees for shifts so that some passengers use the TTC during off-peak hours.
