TRANSIT STUDY

Transit Services conducted an internal Transit Study, which was approved by City Council earlier this year.  Public Information Centre meetings were held in July 2019 at City Hall Council Chambers with the proposed route maps and feedback forms. A survey was also posted online for residents who could not make it to the meetings, which closed mid-August.  This Study will be revisited in the near future.

More information can be found on the Municipal Studies and Plans web page.

Below is a list of those test stops by route:

#1 – Northeast: Springbank Avenue. at Hiawatha Road

#2 - Dundas East: George St. at Kent St. – Starting Monday, March 21st

#4 – Northwest: Lakeview Road at Oxford Road 17

#5 – Southeast: Pattullo Avenue at Greenly Line

#6 – Southwest: Dundas Street5 at Winniette Sreet

#7 – South Central: Athlone Avenue at Finkle Street
