Less service to colleges and universities next week



Exams are ending so many area transit agencies — especially GO Transit — reduce their services to colleges and universities for the holidays. After today, Friday, December 18, many buses that regularly serve passengers traveling to and from post-secondary institutions operate this year’s last regular trips until after New Year’s Day.


The changes affect these routes:
