Regular Transit Service
Regular transit service is provided on modern accessible vehicles. All of our buses were replaced in 2008 and come equipped with two wheel chair locations, a loading ramp and a kneeling feature to ease access and egress. While the current fleet was purchased with the assistance of federal and provincial grants, the replacement value of the buses is approximately $500,000 each.
Electronic destination signs display the route number and name. The route name is reflective of the area of the city service by the route. The route number is also displayed on the curb side and rear of the transit vehicles.
Service is provided on four routes which converge in the downtown core in the vicinity of City Hall and the Mae Wilson theatre. Only a few areas of the City are outside of a 300 walking distance (5 minutes) of a bus stop.
