Standardized tickets and more: What's new with Cornwall Transit

Posted On Tuesday April 16, 2019

What’s new with Cornwall Transit?

  1. We’ve standardized all bus passes and tickets.
    As of May 1, all services can use the same tickets: regular bus routes, Handi-Transit, and the community bus route.
    Any previously purchased Handi-Transit tickets will not expire, and will also be accepted on all other transit services.
  2. On Wednesday, May 1, prices are changing.
    - Cash fare: $3
    - Adult monthly pass: $65
    - Adult 10-ride card: $25
    - Senior monthly pass: $46
    - Senior 10-ride card: $23
    - Student monthly pass: $53
    - Student 10-ride card: $23
    - Children 5 and under: free
    - Community pass: $46
    - Family day pass: $7.75
  3. A real-time app is coming soon!
    The “Way to Go” app will provide users with information about where the bus is thanks to a new program called AVL: Automatic Vehicle Locator. The bus tracker will be available on Cornwall Transit’s website and as a smart phone app. Stay tuned!

These changes are based on recommendations in the Transit Master Plan to reduce the number of fare mediums, be compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, and to introduce a real-time tracking system that will enhance the riding experience for passengers.

“Cornwall Transit is confident that these changes will improve riders’ experience,” said Len Tapp, division manager. “We’re excited to launch the Way to Go app later this spring. Transit riders have asked for this service, and we’re pleased to deliver it.”
