Local transit agencies revise services
during the holidays



During the weeks before and after Christmas, people travel less often by transit. Classes are over until the new year, so students are off and many people take vacation days to enjoy the holidays.

With fewer passengers, local transit systems are decreasing or modifying their services to save on resources — drivers and vehicles. Durham Region Transit, GO Transit, Grand River Transit, MiWay, Oakville Transit, the TTC and York Region Transit are revising services — in fact, generally decreasing services — at various times throughout the week.


The transit agencies are modifying service along these routes:
