BURLINGTON, ON

 

On Sept. 1, 2019, Burlington Transit will make significant changes to the transit system, including the introduction of new routes, schedules and frequencies.

As the city’s population grows over the next 20 years, these changes will help Burlington move toward a transit system that operates on a grid network, with bus service along the city’s most-travelled roads in an east-west and north-south direction. Establishing a grid network will create a transit network with more frequent and better-connected service to help meet the mobility needs of the community.

As a result of the input received from transit users during a series of open house events in April this year several revisions were made to the draft routes and schedules, including:

• Extending the Route 4 bus further into Aldershot
• The addition of weekend service to the 407 carpool parking lot on Routes 2 and 3
• Introduction of improved service and more buses on holidays

In addition to moving towards a grid network, the Sept. 1, 2019 changes will also:

• Move bus service to the south side of the Burlington GO Station – Buses will operate along, and enter the GO Station, from Fairview Street
• Reduce route duplication – Remove routes that cover the same road segments as other routes and routes that operate in only one direction
• Improve frequency of routes – Increase frequency on routes that travel along major roads.
