Why did the Town start a transit service?
The Town did several studies, open houses and other research activities that showed that transit is needed in our growing municipality.
Why is it only being offered on weekdays?
From a financial perspective, it is necessary to start with a basic transit service, and expand in a slow and responsible fashion. Since launching transit in May of 2014, we have already made several improvements to the schedules, including starting service earlier. We will continue to look for opportunities to enhance service.
Can I request a transit stop be added or removed?
If you have a request for the addition or removal of a particular stop, you can let us know and we will add it to the information to be considered for future system adjustments. Decisions to add or remove stops are made based on what's best for riders and the service as a whole, not individual complaints.
Are you hiring bus drivers?
We have contracted with local transportation specialists Switzer-Carty Transportation Inc. to provide us with transit operators and other specialized staff. People interested in employment may apply directly through Switzer-Carty by calling 705-775-7770 or clicking here to visit their website
Does transit run on holidays?
Transit does not currently operate on weekends or statutory holidays. Special service may be offered on select holidays such as New Year's Eve, or for major special events such as CarrotFest, however, it will not run the usual routes or schedules. Check our website, Facebook page or the Town Page in the Bradford Times for advertised special transit services.
Where can I get a transit map?
Printed maps, including schedules and other information, are available on the buses, at any Town office, or from the Library or Leisure Centre. Maps are also available at a number of businesses and community service centres.
Not all stops are indicated on the schedule. How do I know when my bus is coming?
Because there are almost 150 stops, many just a minute or two apart, it's not practical to put every one on the schedule. We have selected key hubs, and the buses are required to be at those stops at the times indicated on the schedule. Between stops, buses may be slightly earlier or later depending on traffic and other considerations. Therefore, the best way to determine what time to be at your stop is to go by the hub before your stop.
