EcoPass payroll deductions delayed until April or later

EcoPass bus passes, the employer-subsidized transit pass service deducted directly from the employee payroll and used largely by federal government employees, will not have their deductions resumed until late April, at the earliest, according to the OC Transpo official website:
ECOPASS payroll deductions have been stopped - ECOPASSES are valid on all
OC Transpo service. Payroll deductions will resume at the end of April.

One assumes this is because full service is not expected to resume until April 6, 2009, and EcoPass holders continued paying for their passes during the first few weeks of the strike. Express and Rural Express EcoPasses will not resume deductions until May 1, shortly after Express and Rural Express routes will have resumed.
