Peterborough Transit revises route near hospital,
starting October 31



Update, Tuesday, December 6, 10:37 a.m.: Yesterday, Peterborough City Council officially renamed the new roadway “Medical Drive”.


The City of Peterborough recently opened a new roadway — the City hasn’t yet officially named the road — near Peterborough Regional Health Centre.

Now that the hospital access road is open, Peterborough Transit is slightly revising the route of buses providing its 5 Charlotte West service, so that buses operate along the new roadway, starting Monday, October 31.

Alexander Avenue now ends at Alexander Court and the City has extended Alexander Court is eastward to intersect the new road. Outbound buses now loop through the hospital from the front-door stop south to Alexander Court then turn eastward to access the hospital access Road. From there, the bus turns southward to Sherbrooke Street, then westward to Goodfellow Road to pick up original routing.


5 Charlotte West

Inbound buses continue to operate along their current route.

Starting Monday, October 31, outbound buses operate along their current route to Peterborough Regional Health Centre, then proceed:

eastward along Alexander Court;
southward along the new roadway;
westward along Sherbrooke Street to Goodfellow Road,
resuming their current route southward along Goodfellow.
