GRT operates shuttle buses to GO trains,
starting December 19



Grand River Transit is operating shuttle bus service between the Charles Street Terminal and the Kitchener VIA Rail / GO Station for GRT passengers hoping to connect with GO Transit trains. The shuttle buses operate Mondays to Fridays during rush hours, starting Monday, December 19, the first day of GO train service to and from Kitchener.

A small, community-size GRT “BusPLUS” van will carry passengers between the two transit terminals, stopping at the site of the future transit hub at Victoria Street North and King Street West. (The Region of Waterloo is opening a free parking lot at Victoria and King for GO train riders.)

GRT has co-ordinated the shuttle schedule with all GO train and two VIA Rail Canada trains operating between Kitchener and Union Station in Toronto.

It’s charging passengers riding GRT buses to the GO train just 50 cents, if they can show drivers valid GO Transit tickets or passes. The same 50-cent fare lets GO Transit train riders ride GRT’s BusPLUS shuttle service to the train station. Along with your 50� fare, you’ll need to show a valid GO Transit train ticket or pass to your shuttle vehicle operator when boarding.

VIA Rail Canada passengers who ride the VIA train that leaves Kitchener at 6:29 a.m. Mondays to Fridays — or the train that returns to Kitchener at 7:20 p.m. — may also ride the GRT BusPLUS shuttle. However, VIA passengers must pay the full GRT fare of $2.50 cash or carry a valid GRT ticket or pass to board the shuttle vehicles.

GRT BusPLUS Shuttle vans leave the Charles Street Terminal at 5:40, 6:14 and 6:55 a.m. and 6:55 and 7:32 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. They arrive at Kitchener Station at 5:46, 6:21 and 7:01 a.m. and 7:01 and 7:38 p.m. The vans leave Kitchener Station at 5:50 and 6:25 a.m. and 6:45, 7:23 and 7:45 p.m. They arrive in the Charles Street Terminal at 5:56 and 6:31 a.m. and 6:51, 7:29 and 7:51 p.m.
