Revised service to colleges, universities,
during holidays, starting December 19



Exams are ending and classes are over until the new year, so many area transit agencies — especially GO Transit — decrease services to colleges and universities for the holidays. Starting this week, fewer buses operate along many of the routes that serve passengers traveling to and from post-secondary institutions. Most service resumes after New Year’s Day.


Transit agencies are decreasing services to: Brock University, Centennial College’s Morningside and Progress campuses, Conestoga College’s Cambridge, Doon and Waterloo campuses, Durham College’s North Oshawa campus, Fleming College’s Sutherland campus, Humber College’s Lakeshore and North campuses, McMaster University main Hamilton campus, Niagara College’s Glendale and Woodlawn campuses, Redeemer University College, Sheridan College’s davis and Trafalgar campuses, Trent University’s Symons campus and the University of Guelph’s main Guelph campus, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) North Oshawa campus, the University of Toronto’s Mississauga and Scarborough campuses, the University of Waterloo’s main Waterloo campus, Wilfrid Laurier University’s Waterloo campus and York University’s Keele campus.

Transit agencies often interline buses operating along two or more routes that share a common terminal to save resources — vehicles and drivers.

For example, a southbound bus operating along the St. Catharines Transit Commission’s 4 Oakdale - Pen - Brock route arrives at the Brock Tower Terminal, then continues northward along the 16 Brock - Glenridge route. A southbound bus operating along the 16 Brock - Glenridge route arrives at Brock, then continues along the 4 Oakdale - Pen - Brock route - at least during the holiday period.
