Increasing service along routes


652 Port Perry Connector

DRT is greatly expanding this on-demand service carrying passengers from points throughout Scugog Township to the Port Perry Terminal. In Port Perry, passengers can connect to DRT or GO Transit buses operating along other routes.

Drivers plot distinct routes every trip, depending on where passengers are travelling to or from.

Starting Tuesday, January 2, 2018, DRT operates buses on several trips in each direction Mondays to Fridays, instead of a single daily trip.

Buses arrive on Curts Street east of Water Street at 6:39, 7:39, 8:49, 10:19 and 11:42 a.m. and 1:49, 2:59, 4:59 and 6:30 p.m. Buses leave Curts east of Water at 10:32 a.m. and 1:10, 3:20, 4:30, 5:30, 6:22 and 7:52 p.m.

Revising the paths for buses operating along routes


601 Brock / Uxbridge

DRT says it’s revised the path for buses operating along the route, but has not described how it’s doing so.

We’ve looked at both the old and new maps of the route and can see no difference in the paths. One difference that does appear in the new maps is that they label the hamlet of Valentyne - but the buses served the hamlet previously, even if the maps didn’t identify the place.
