Less transit service to colleges and universities,
after December 19



Many area transit agencies — especially GO Transit — reduce their services to colleges and universities for the holidays. Next Friday, many buses that regularly serve passengers traveling to and from post-secondary institutions operate this year’s last regular trips next Friday until after New Year’s Day.
