The Town of Bracebridge, following the guidance provided by the Government of Ontario and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, continues to resume transit services using a gradual and phased approach. Based on the province-wide vaccination rate and continuing improvements in key public health and health system indicators, along with the newly instated vaccination certificate requirements, Bracebridge Transit and Bracebridge Mobility will be lifting the limited rider capacities on its vehicles starting September 20, 2021.

Since Mid-March 2020, Bracebridge Transit and Bracebridge Mobility suspended fares due to municipal facility closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the modified resumption of in-person services at the Bracebridge Sportsplex, Public Library and Municipal Office, transit fare collection will resume, starting October 25, 2021.
