But the rules are different for passengers.
STM Bus Drivers Will No Longer Have To Wear Masks While Driving

As of Monday, Société de transport de Montréal (STM) bus drivers will no longer have to wear masks while driving.

A June 10 notice posted to the STM website clarified that the CNESST, the workplace rights and safety commission in Quebec, no longer recommends that bus drivers in Montreal wear masks when driving.

According to the notice, the CNESST decided to loosen its COVID-19 measures in Montreal workplaces days before the city is designated a COVID-19 yellow zone in Quebec.

However, dividers will remain in place on Montreal buses, acting as a physical barrier between drivers and passengers.

Montreal bus passengers will still be required to wear masks and follow other public health measures, as outlined by Quebec public health.
