Service Updates: Effective March 31

As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable transit, we are making quarterly updates to keep our service current and effective. Transit users can expect to see quarterly updates in March, June, September and December.

The most recent update to routes and schedules took effect March 31, 2017. Some school routes and School Special service has been affected by the updates.

Be sure to check the new schedules to plan your next trip and adjust for any changes to service that may affect you.

Summary of March 31 Updates

  • New service — Route 9 (Cartier Heights/Brett Drive). Routes 12 (Timberlea and Thickwood Local) and 31 (Timberlea) were eliminated and combined as the new Route 9.
  • School service along Routes 12 and 31 are now serviced by the new Route 9 or a School Special. Affected school routes include École McTavish, Father Mercredi, Holy Trinity, St. Anne’s and Westwood.
  • Changes in service to Route 16 (Thickwood Express) - some runs have been added and others eliminated to align service times with ridership.
  • Reduction in service — fewer trips — on the following routes: 1, 2, 10, 11, 15, 41, 51, 91 and 92.
  • Additional rural service to Anzac. In effect since early February 2017, Transit service from Anzac is now available on Tuesdays and Fridays. Rural transit is also available from Janvier on Tuesdays and Conklin on Fridays.
  • Ride for free — Seniors 65 and up, and children under five. Available for conventional service only, and does not include SMART Bus or rural service.
  • Did you know that Transit buses are wheelchair friendly? Our buses also kneel to meet your needs and make accessibility much easier.
  • Printed schedules are now available. A supplementary map and schedule for Route 9 (Cartier Heights/Brett Drive) will be inserted into the new printed schedules in the coming weeks.
